Greenlandic Children carries out social activities in Greenland and Denmark for Greenlandic children and young people in vulnerable life situations. We work to ensure that no Greenlandic child grows up in poverty, abuse, or neglect. Children must be heard and involved, and many more Greenlandic children and young people must have an education. We emphasize that our efforts are established in close cooperation with local authorities, organizations, professionals, children, and young people and with respect for local culture and language.
Greenlandic Children currently has 10 ongoing projects in Greenland and Denmark and is present in all Greenlandic municipalities, as well as in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg, Esbjerg, Randers and Vejle. The organization has 30 employees and more than 100 volunteers. The projects are financed by public funds, foundations, support, and sponsorship from companies as well as private members and contributors.
HM Queen Margrethe II is our protector, and in 2018 we received the Crown Prince Couple's Social Prize.
