Barndrømmen initiates projects, which aim to benefit children and youths, who live in poverty in Denmark. Barndrømmen is proudly sponsored by Avenue Hotel.

A growing group of children and youths in Denmark do not have access to benefits and experiences, which other youngsters their age take for granted.
Barndrømmen aims to give these youngsters a helping hand; the voluntary, non-profit organization was founded by cultural entrepreneur Dorthe Foged.
Avenue Hotel is proud to support Barndrømmen.

The Number of Youngsters living in Poverty is Rising
“Thousands of children and youths live in poverty in Denmark – and the number is rising,” says Dorthe Foged, Founder and Daily manager of the voluntary, non-profit organization, Barndrømmen (Child’s Dream).
“The youngsters lack access to the benefits and experiences, which other youngsters their age take for granted: a proper bed, healthy food, winter boots which fit properly, toys and IT-equipment.”
Dorthe Foged is an award-winning cultural entrepreneur, and the former Director of The Danish Institute of Culture in Great-Britain. She founded Barndrømmen inspired by her experiences in Great-Britain, where private people support – and get involved in – a wide range of charitable activities.

A Helping Hand to Underprivileged Youngsters
“Barndrømmen aims to give underprivileged Danish children and youths a helping hand,” says Dorthe Foged.
“Through Barndrømmen we aim to raise awareness about the conditions these youngsters live under, and through our own initiatives we aim to give them cultural experiences, benefits and make them feel included.”

“Thousands of youngsters  in Denmark do not have access to the benefits and experiences, which other youngsters their age take for granted: a proper bed, healthy food, winter boots which fit properly, toys and IT-equipment,” says Dorthe Foged, Founder and Daily Manager of Barndrømmen.

Barndrømmen’s Future Projects
Barndrømmen will focus on two projects in summer and autumn 2011:
Home-to-home: a project, which directly through Barndroemmen.dk supplies clothes, toys, sports equipment and the like from families with things to spare, to children and youths, who live in poverty.
Culture-tour: In autumn 2011 Barndrømmen will organize a range of cultural activities for underprivileged youngsters.
The two projects will involve a long list of acclaimed artists, like television personality Shane Bronx and jazz musician Chris Minh Doky.
