The overall purpose of The All People foundation is to help creating job opportunities for people with reduced work ability. The Foundation is doing this by owning (in part or in full) commercial business, which contribute to the purpose of the foundation.
The Foundation may also work for the purpose of spreading knowledge of how to run commercial businesses – as well as other initiatives, which also contribute to the purpose of the Foundation.
VALUE FOR THE INDIVIDUAL
I had to fight not to go on early retirement when I became visually impaired. It is important for me to be a good role model for my children. To show them that I can contribute to society, even with a visual impairment.
Because I have a job, I have the resources and energy to tackle the various challenges in life. Having a job gives me an inner power. To me, it is very important to be part of the work community, to feel that I contribute, rather than being “parked” somewhere. It gives me an inner strength to be part of society.

VALUE FOR SOCIETY
When a social enterprise delivers quality at the right price, it creates social value, and the social enterprise is able to live up to its purpose – to create jobs for people who are vulnerable.
The total economic gain for Denmark when a person with a disability – i.e. a visual impairment – gets a job comes to 136,000 DKK per year (22,500 USD) year. *

“To me it is self explanatory that we all should have the opportunity to unfold – also in terms of one’s job – to the extent we are able to. I have seen so many examples of what it means to get a chance in working life for people, who have been outside a working life for a long time. Therefore, I personally fully support the purpose of the All People Foundation, and I am pleased to contribute such as the foundation can make a difference for people with reduced work ability.”
