Unannounced Events 2017

Recommended Posts

Director of Communications at the Danish royal court, Lene Balleby, stated many years ago, that not all official events and 

work that the members of the DRF do, are added to the official calendar at kongehuset.dk.

Events like meetings, audiences, visits to patronages and charities and so on. 

 

This is a thread where these unannounced/unofficial/unpublished events for 2017 that we know of, can be gathered in one

place and the general news thread can be kept for just that.

 

We will continue with a new thread for 2018 when the time comes.

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, 9th June - 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."
