The Engagement effort in Denmark

An important part of 100% for the Children's work is to be present in the Danish civil society to strengthen the engagement towards sustainable development and the goals we fight to achieve.

We focus on the engagement of youth and sustainable development at festivals and fairs across the country.

I årenes løb har vi blandt andet samarbejdet med et folkekøkken om at sætte fokus på sult, deltaget i Grøn KBH for at fortælle om bæredygtighed, arrangeret en aften i Poesiens Hus with a focus on creative writing in development work and been to the Sjællandsfestivalen to inform about disabled people’s rights in Kenya.

The Danish organizer of castle fairs, CHPeventsupports us with free fair stands, which we are incredibly grateful for. Contact us at col@100pct.orgif you have a trade fair or something similar, so we can reach out to more people with our messages and projects. We also sell arts and crafts made by the children and young people, that we work with and tell the stories behind these products.

Collaboration with Danish organizations

As part of our work 100% for Children has an interest in establishing cooperation and agreements on strategic collaborations with other development organizations in Denmark. That is why we are currently collaborating with Ingeniører uden Grænser and Periamma, while we are regularly involved in exchanging experiences with other Danish organizations. We are also a member of several networks for development organizations including Verdens Bedste Nyheder, CISU and the Committee of Globalt Fokus.

Global goals in motion

100% for The Children holds presentations and does fond financed projects with the Danish primary schools. The purpose is to make the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development more tangible for teachers and students. At the same time we want to spread the knowledge of how smaller NGOs work with development.

Poetic Empowerment

Creative writing is a means of independent thinking and an alternative to rote learning, because it allows young people to express themselves. We have used creative writing in our CISU-supported information project Poetic Empowerment: Youth in Dialogue 2017, which rethinks how creative writing and development work can function together in synergy. The poetry collection of the same name is a product of the platform we created, so that young street children and marginalized girls in Ghana could tell about their experiences and exchange them with peers from two Danish schools in Randers. You can buy the poetry collection for 200 DKK, - incl. postage and thus support our projects. Donate 200 DKK, - here and inform us about your purchase by writing an email to, and we will take care of the shipment.

Creative writing is integrated into the REEP-projektet and the CAS-project, where the children have now started performing Ghanaian poems and writing their own poems to ‘empower’ their voices and tell their own stories. At the same time, it serves as material for teaching at the two Danish schools and at the Center for Street Children (Catholic Action for Street Children) in Accra, where street children now strengthen their voices through writing of poetry.
