Social responsibility across borders
Everybody has the right to take part in their society
TEH's aim is to advocate and implement this into practice
Whatever it is about: Inclusion of Roma children in schools in Bulgaria or empowerment of young people with dual diagnosis in Denmark, the development of institutions for the disabled in Romania, reform of psychiatry in Albania, support for the professional qualification of social workers in Russia or Kyrgyzstan, establishment of shelters for vulnerable children and women in Lithuania, cooperation on education boost in social and pedagogical faculties of education between Russian and EU universities, social capital growth initiatives in civil society projects in Belarus and many other exciting activities that link human rights to practical and real opportunities for all - then TEH like to take part!
Also when it is difficult and requires paving the the way, while we go ... But this can only be done with your help.
TEH has throughout its activity focused on particular opportunities for young people not to be maintained andhidden away in the institutions. That is why we are working with especially with projects and activities around the job training, education and jobs for young people. Eg. to create social enterprises that can fit in the various communities in which we work.
But TEH are not only working for and with young people. Actually we work anywhere without "putting people in boxes" - neither in terms of age or diagnostic.
TEH believes it is important to cooperate with others in order to achieve some results as a small humanitarian organization. Therefore, we have of course always local partners in the countries we work in. But TEH is also a member of numerous Danish and international networks and associations to learn and to enhance its impact. Some of these are:
The Chairman informs.
Social responsebility across borders and humanitarian work is actually worth it - but it takes time.
The European House is a humanitarian association that supports the most vulnerable groups in society with moving
ahead in life and being an active part of their community.
And not only to get better living conditions. We seek to increase the social capital those places where we start, so we
can get the local community, groups and citizens to take care of local issues of any kind, so there also space and
possibilities for the weakest groups- groups that the ordinary society does not think there's room for, whether we call
them people with disabilities, young criminals, psychiatry patients, abused, old or something completely different.
TEH has since the start of October 1994 completed projects in Denmark, East Europe, Russia, Kyrgysztan, Ukraine.
We think it's good and educational to work together across borders- both academically and geographically.
Partly because we are part of the same "global" house and because we can learn something of those, that maybe see
the world a bit differently from our view. It's simply about creating good neighborhood. Humanly and professionally.
It's these simple principles that we through the years have worked after, regardless of the many different activities
and projects we have worked on.
