Moins Fortunes is a Danish NGO that helps children in East Africa get education to make them & the communities stronger, we also help the artist that makes the artwork for our products.
Moins Fortunes is a Danish NGO that got registered in September 2013, and have had it as it’s goal to help Orphans, Homeless (Children), children of poor families to attend school and get an education as to improve not just their own life but also the community around them.
We have also assisted with medical service in a few serious cases, this is something we would like to expand and will look more into it in the near future.
Besides that we are working together with other organizations to help other groups, such as helping young girls against early pregnancies (From 9 years of age it has been seen), to early marriages, where a family would marry away their young daughters, for survival.
Why and how did Moins Fortunes start?
Well, in 2010-2011 the founder Mads Molgaard went to visit a Tanzanian friend that had started his own school with his wife to help and assist the children of poor families and challenged children that others would not teach or had given up on.
When the founder saw the more than 100 children run to meet him and talk to this strange mzungu and he saw how they were happy and smiling, he was deeply touched. Since that day he started working towards the goal of being able to help as many children as possible to go to school and get an education, but not just that, his wish is that the organization will be able to help the children beyond Primary and secondary school (High School) so that they can get assistance to finish a higher degree, if they have the option to attend a higher education.
So in September 2013 Moins Fortunes was registered and the work started.
