Frank has been volunteering in Trampoline House's cleaning team for 3 years.

"I like it here because I see so many people from all over the world and sometimes people from my home country of Ghana which gives me the chance to speak my own language. When I come here I feel happier and more energised than if I stay in the camp, where there is very little for us to do. Here in Trampoline House there are many activities. I learned how to speak Danish by going to classes here, and I was able to meet and speak with Danish people to improve even more"

His friend, Madda, is an intern in Trampoline House.

"What I like most about Trampoline House is the platform it provides for people. It's an open space where anyone can come and feel at home. The concept of it is attached to the fact that you have people living in camps and there is no communal space where everyone can be and just be there and be themselves.

People who come to the house can also get food, it is warm to be inside here and if you actually need assistance in any area Trampoline House can help with counselling, legal help and medical. It is a holistic place where you can get a little bit of everything."
