“My heart has always beaten for people – especially children – in difficult circumstances. I am so sad to see the effects that the government’s asylum restrictions have on the children that are new to Denmark. Children that come with different traumatic experiences from their home countries and who are placed in just as traumatizing centers around the country.

My vision for Trampoline House’s Children’s Club is to work as a counterpart to all the negative influences that these children are subject to. Influences that interrupt the children’s possibilities to learn and develop. The Children’s Club is to function as a nice place, where these children can find ease, security, positive relations, predictability and happiness, which can improve their quality of life and inclusion in the Danish society.”
