Best Buddies Denmark

Best Buddies Denmark was launched in 2008 and currently operates the Citizens Program. In addition to their successful friendships, Best Buddies Denmark has partnered with TV Glad, the first TV-station in the world for and run by people with intellectual disabilities. TV Glad’s task and contribution to Best Buddies Denmark, in addition to creating its website, is communicating the mission and the opportunity for friendship to the community at large. TV-Glad broadcasts its programs on various local TV-channels in Denmark and produces and broadcasts 30 minutes daily on television. The programs are broadcasted at both day and night and are available to be seen by approximately 1/3 of the Danish population.

Expressing oneself and telling stories about everyday life are essential elements in self-awareness and personal identity. Through TV-Glad, individuals with intellectual disabilities are finding their own voice and being heard! That voice is echoing the importance of friendship!
