vulnerable. We are engaged in activities in both Greenland and Denmark. AGC's activities are academically sound and endeavor to solve the specific problems that characterize the lives of Greenlandic children and young people in both Greenland and Denmark. We consider

children and young people to be competent contributors and therefore involve them in the projects for the benefit of all parties.

DIGNITY is a Danish human rights institute, which works with treatment, research,

international development work and advocacy. We are present in more than 20 countries where we cooperate with local partner organisations to fight torture and help torture victims and their families to a better life. DIGNITY works to eradicate torture, abuse and organized violence in Denmark as well as abroad. We do so because we know that torture destroys people, increases violence in society and creates a fundamental sense of insecurity and fear in the countries where torture is used. DIGNITY was one of the first places in the world to offer treatment to torture victims. For more than 30 years, we have been helping torture victims to a better life. On a global scale, we work in politics, law and healthcare to make sure that all torture victims get the necessary treatment.

Danish National Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF Danmark)

The Danish National Committee for UNICEF is the Danish department of UNICEF. UNICEF is the UN Children’s Foundation and the world’s largest and most influential relief organisation for children. The organisation operates in more than 150 developing countries and in 36 industrialized countries through National Committees within all the areas, which are important to ensure children’s rights to survival and development.

Through its work, UNICEF e.g. ensures that children get a good and healthy start in life, vaccinations against the most dangerous children’s diseases and equal access to education.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child plays a central role in the work, and to aid children who are in need of special protection, e.g. children who are subject to violence and abuse is one of the main working areas, which is given the highest priority. Most of the UNICEF funds are allocated to long-term children’s relief. However, UNICEF also provides quick and effective help in emergency situations, because the organization is present when an emergency occurs by means of its network of national offices. The work of UNICEF is solely financed by voluntary donations.

The purpose of UNICEF Danmark is to disseminate the knowledge of the conditions and rights of children, to create an understanding of the work of the organization and to raise funds for this work.
