HOUSE MEETING: How to coordinate volunteer help and aid better in Sjælsmark
The house meeting is the democratic parliament and information forum of Trampoline House, where users, interns, volunteers, and staff update each other on news and discuss urgent issues related to the house and life as a refugee/asylum seeker. The meeting takes place every Tuesday. This Tuesday, we will finalize our discussion from last week’s meeting about what can be done to coordinate volunteer help and aid better in Sjælsmark according to the wishes of residents. When: Tuesday, May 28, 4–5:30 pm. Where: Trampoline House’s café.
SAVE THE DATE: Birthday party & Fundraiser
On Saturday, June 8, Trampoline House turns 8 years old – during all that time the house has fought to ensure an alternative to the Danish asylum system despite a harsh political climate. In line with tradition we celebrate this with a grand birthday party, featuring a festive program for children and grown ups. We hope you will join the celebration! You can see the full program here.
IF YOU WANT TO GIVE TRAMPOLINE HOUSE A BIRTHDAY PRESENT, please become a monthly supporter or send us a donation. We really need money for our Children's Club, which is growing due to the increasing number of children from Sjælsmark who desperately need to get out of the camp and join the club! See how to support here: www.trampolinehouse.dk/stoet 🎉In order for us to know approximately how many people to expect, we ask you to please sign up for the party here.
WOMEN’S CLUB: A safe space for the women of the house
Women seeking asylum are especially vulnerable during their flight and do not always feel safe in Denmark’s asylum centers either. That is why Trampoline House has created a Women’s Club, offering special programs for women only. The club meets every first Saturday of the month from 2–7 pm and every second and third Friday of the month from 4–6 pm. On the first Saturday of the month, the club offers legal and medical counseling, relaxation therapy, workshops, cooking, and community. On Fridays, the club offers lectures and workshops on feminist and human rights issues during Women's Class. Women's Club is a safe space where women can talk freely about the problems we experience as women in our daily lives, in Danish society, and in the asylum centers. In 2019, Women’s Club also formed the initiative Sisters Cuisine Food Club, which organizes monthly migration political food events and workshops in the house, and publishes cookbooks. Join us this Saturday from 2–7 pm!
