About us

The local association in Svendborg will be a local hotspot for pregnant women and families with children who are in a difficult situation. We will arrange activities that create networks and good experiences for children and parents. The profits from our upcoming store will go to the local family activities and to Mødrehjælpen's nationwide counseling. We are currently a board of 5 people with different competencies that complement each other well, but we lack two cool store managers who will take responsibility for starting and running our store - of course with great support and backing from the rest of the board. You will be part of a board with lots of commitment and drive. We work seriously, but also have fun.

We are looking forward to hear from you! is Denmark's leading volunteer job portal.
