CAMP TO CAMPUS
Once you are no longer fleeing you stop being a refugee. Once you have nowhere to go where ever you are becomes your home. That does makes sense right? But still we have the tendency to call men and women refugees while they are trying hard to build up a new live. Movement on the Ground does not speak of a camp but of a village and like everywhere else in the world, we call the people living in the village residents. It might be just a matter of speech but the ideology behind these words embodies our Camp to CampUS philosophy. Just like any other community we want the residents to have a place to meet each other, to have education, to have health care, to have nutritious daily meals, to have sport facilities and to have a centre for arts and music. By creating this type of camp we hope to prepare and empower them so that when they leave the camp they have the tools needed to start a new life in their foster homes. That does makes sense right?
- All of our current, past and future projects are all based on the Camp to CampUS philosophy, to build a more sustainable and self-sufficient camp that uses innovative ideas and solutions to bring dignity and humanity to the residents of the camp
