"Antibulli - team spirit is always a winner makes it easy for handball coaches to work with good team relations and to prevent bullying in children’s handball."

 

This is the underlying philosophy behind Antibulli, a joint effort initiated by The Mary Foundation and MH24

– Foreningen Mikkel mod Mobning (*Mikkel Against Bullying).

Mary Fonden facebook. Posted Tuesday, so this workshop took place on Monday the 6th February.

 

"There was a discussion on mission and strategy, knowledge and challenges, project design and schedule on yesterday's workshop on one of the Mary Foundation's

upcoming big projects. Throughout our way of thinking and planning projects is the holistic approach and long-term goals. We know it well; there are no easy solutions

to complex problems, but with a sustained and comprehensive effort, we believe that we reach the longest. Yesterday we took a small step."

"We human beings have always needed each other - once just to survive, and now to feel safe and accepted.

Social situations help shape who we are and define our identity. Being excluded from a group can therefore have devastating effects."

 

 

"These are some of the English phrases that actor and audio book reader Ellen Hillingsø has just recorded for us in a sound studio.

The words have been translated from our Danish video about the mechanisms of bullying, which has been so successful that it is now translated into English. We are looking to spreading the important messages about why bullying occurs and what to do to prevent to an even bigger audience"

"The social media is overflowed with photos of the ideal life and the perfect body.


With the media competition, we hope to start a discussion about diversity and tolerance among the students. Loving oneself is largely about accepting oneself 

as you are- inside as well as outside, "says Helle Østergaard, director of the Mary Foundation, in today's press release."


The media competition gives students in classes 6 to 10. the opportunity to be critical to the norms and ideals that create the dream of 'the perfect'.
Together with Sex and Society, Politiken*, Jyllands Posten*, Ekstra Bladet*, Ole Kirk Foundation and the Department for Equal Opportunities in the Ministry

of Foreign Affairs, we stand behind the media competition, which is open for registration today"

Unofficial work: Mary Foundation workshop on Wednesday the 31st May

 

"In the Mary Foundation we gathered on Wednesday leading professionals for a full day workshop about Greenland. Since the establishment of the Mary Foundation,

it has been natural to include Greenland in our work. We work to combat social isolation - also in Greenland, and as the Crown Princess summed up today's workshop, i

t can only be done through involvement, ownership and action."

To be moved

 

November 2015 CP Mary visited Senegal with the organizations 'Orchid Project' and 'Tostan'.

 

From Orchid Project Denmark back then:

"Orchid Project and Crown Princess Mary was in November (2015) in Senegal to see our amazing partner TOSTAN's work, and to testify that 52

villages stopped circumcision. The visit is made in order to experience and obtain a deeper understanding of the organizations' work with

"Community Empowerment Programs" with a special focus on women and girls' rights and female genital mutilation.

 

 

Today- Mary hosted an unofficial meeting at Frederik 8 Palace

 

"HRH The Crown Princess today hosted a meeting at Frederik VIII's Palace, Amalienborg, where the director of Tostan, Molly Melching, spoke about the organization's

work on changing social norms. Tostan is an NGO with headquarters in Senegal, which through education and training helps local communities in Africa to create sustainable development and social transformation based on human rights."

 

Birgitte Zachau Handwerk, a close friend of F&M's, is Vice Chairman of Orchid Project Denmark and was also part of the visit to Senegal.

Birgitte is standing behind Mary in the photo.

The Mary Foundation:
"How do you create sustainable and locally driven change? One of the women who is the best to answer that question is Molly Melching, founder and CEO of the organization Tostan. The Crown Princess has met Molly Melching on several occasions and also experienced Tostan's work in Senegal.

 

Today, the Crown Princess invited a number of the fund's collaborators to a meeting where Molly Melching shared some of her many experiences. For joy and inspiration - not least for us in the Mary Foundation. It became an exciting talk about how any change requires deep understanding of culture, values and social norms. And lots of patience."

" How long can you hold your breath?

Do you sometimes try to make your life seem more perfect than it really is?
Do you also think that telling your friends, how you really feel, is difficult at times?
Then you are not alone – one in every five youngsters finds it difficult to share what is bothering them with their friends.
But no one can hold their breath forever.
Air your thoughts ...
This film is produced in cooperation with Ventilen Danmark and Mayday Film."
