The organisation Danes Worldwide was set up in 1919 to support Danes moving abroad. Since then, the organisation has grown to reach out to over 20,000 members across the world and has become an influential lobbyist with the Danish government. Danes Worldwide is run by Anne Marie Dalgaard, a woman who knows all about what it is like to live abroad. “One morning, I woke up and found myself in Moscow with my husband and two children under the age of four,” explains Dalgaard. “It was a huge change, and I really wish I’d known at that time that there was an organisation called Danes Worldwide, who could’ve supported me and helped me find others in my situation.”
