Christina Bilde is Spokeswoman & Head of Corporate Communicate of Roskilde Festival Charity Society
She explains why Roskilde Festival supports Trampoline House:
“The people involved with Trampoline house have really succeeded in creating a meeting place and an open environment that attracts people across ethnicities and backgrounds.
As we saw at this year’s Roskilde Festival, it’s been done by working in many areas: with food, with art, and through the meeting and conversation between people.
It is very inspiring, but unfortunately it is also an effort that is constantly, and particularly these days, under pressure. That is why it was important for us, now more than ever, to support you with a donation.”
New course on entrepreneurship makes it easier for refugees and asylum seekers to find a job or start their own business.
“I come to Trampoline House to learn Danish and to learn about the Danish society, so I can build my life. If you can learn it, it means you can do it.”
Trampoline House has seen a lot of reconstruction since last summer, improving the space for children’s activities, socializing in the café and focused work.
On 8th of March, women with and without refugee background came together to discuss their rights and possibilities.
Trampoline House’s new legal counselor focuses on making immigration law more understandable for asylum seekers and refugees. She offers free counseling every week.
At Trampoline House’s house meetings, the participants are practicing democratic dialogue. Meanwhile, the government and the Danish People’s Party are restricting refugees’ possibilities for integration.
The new Women’s Class empowers women by sharing stories and discussing feminism and human rights.
Ping Pong is more than just a popular sport. By playing ping pong, you can practice living in accordance with Buddhistic and philosophical values.
The government’s refugee policies don’t make sense on a humane, democratic or economical level. We have to resist!
“Please listen to our voices. We do not want our loved children crying every day because of the horrible living conditions. Our children are asking, why are we living here? Asking, what shall we eat? We, parents have no answers but to cry also ourselves. We don't want our kids to suffer any more.”
