A fundraising campaign initiated by Global Shapers Copenhagen in support of Trampoline House. Keep reading to find out what makes this cause important - now more than ever. Also, for every 50 kroner that you donate to help refugees and their families, you get 1 raffle ticket for the chance to win a special prize! Details below and winners announced in mid-August.
One thing the corona crisis has taught us is that community matters. But for refugee adults and children in Denmark, community can be hard to find - not to mention sustainable employment. This is where the award-winning organization Trampoline House makes an important difference.
Trampoline House is a place where people who have fled their homes to escape war or human rights abuses can once again experience a sense of belonging. Refugees can talk to a lawyer, receive counseling, learn the Danish language and get help finding a job. Besides gaining valuable skills, refugees come to Trampoline House to build their network and to put feminism and democracy into pratice. More info about Trampoline House's different activities here.
Fighting for survival
Unfortunately, Trampoline House has been hit hard financially by the COVID-19 crisis. In order to continue assisting refugees, they desperately need your support. Without donations like yours, Trampoline House might be forced to close down.
When crisis strikes, it is the people at the bottom of the social pyramid who are hit the hardest. This means that it’s especially people with a refugee or immigrant background who are at risk of losing their jobs when the labor market is under pressure. Hence, Trampoline House's training programs are threatened at the same time that they're needed more than ever.
Help keep them alive
