“The Welcome Party” 2016 – we’ll be there!

Velkomstfesten ('The Welcome Party') 2016 - we'll be there!

When Forum Copenhagen, for the first time ever, opens its doors to Denmark’s largest welcoming party – the Velkomstfest – on Saturday 10 September, Tolkegruppen Oversættergruppen P/S will be there as a language partner.
We will assist with our professional interpreters all day across several languages; furthermore, we will coordinate the efforts of the many volunteers, who have also offered to help break down the language barrier.

Velkomstfesten 2016 is an innovative and beneficial initiative. There are many obstacles to becoming integrated into a new society, when one arrives there as a refugee. Finding employment is but one obstacle, but once that happens, you have already come very far

states Ben Belkhaoui, Chairman of the Board and founder of Tolkegruppen Oversættergruppen P/S.

Velkomstfesten 2016 is a not-for-profit event bringing together corporate life, NGOs, celebrities and a large number of fantastic volunteers, all united in a desire to give refugees a better future in Denmark. Our interpreters will join the many booths and assist with the language, whenever relations are made and great advice given over CVs.

Together with Velkomstfesten, we turn the focus to the many qualities brought by refugees, which can contribute positively to our society. We look forward to a day of interesting events, great atmosphere and to meeting all the participants

Ben Belkhaoui rounds off.

We will see you at Velkomstfesten 2016!
