Why does DIGNITY have ambassadors?

We have ambassadors for two reasons. First, they help us reach a lot of Danes with knowledge and facts about torture and the consequences of torture. Second, they help us raise funds for our work, e.g. through our many charity events such as Music for DIGNITY.

At DIGNITY, we are very proud of having so many competent and committed ambassadors working for our cause!

DIGNITY's Business Ambassadors

Every year, DIGNITY’s Business Ambassadors help DIGNITY raise funds for the organisation’s work – through joint initiatives but also by involving the various networks of which they are part. The Business Ambassadors are also DIGNITY’s direct voice to Danish businesses and therefore they are important to DIGNITYs development in the business sector.
