  • On Samos, the population of Vathy camp is sitting at roughly around 7,500 people. A good half of this population is living outside of the camp vaccinaties in summer tents, in an area referred to as ‘The Jungle’. . ‘The Jungle’ is not suitable for tents due to the instability of the ground. So, as a way to make a slight improvement to the living conditions, we provide residents living in summer tents with pallets and tarps. By all means, this isn’t the ideal solution but it helps to create at least a more stable and safe shelter. . Want to contribute to improving these living conditions and elevate this solution to the next level? Invest in the residents of Vathy camp by contributing to our mission.

  • “All kids need is a little help, a little hope, and somebody who believes in them.” – Magic Johnson . We at Movement On The Ground strongly believe in the preservation of the hopes and dreams of children. This mentality applies to both the children residing in our CampUs’s, and the children living in the communities that host our CampUs’s. . Our sports program is just one way in which we do this. The curriculum of our program uses sports, games, reflection tools and educational activities as a means to promote peace, tolerance and understanding among children. Furthermore, it encourages a sense of social cohesion. . To read more about how our program defies all boundaries, instils a sense of hope and how you can contribute to this program, head to our #linkinbio. . #camptocampus #sportsprogram #hope #dignityforall
  • #Love has the strength to overcome obstacles and stretch across borders. . We at Movement On The Ground have made the conscious decision to channel our love towards the refugee population on Lesvos and Samos since 2015, but today we are choosing to channel our love, our compassion and our empathy towards the local Greek communities on Lesvos and Samos. Today, these communities are our chosen #Valentine’s. . We have always worked together closely with the local #Greek population and we have always tried to put their needs and wants on high priority. But sometimes, the needs and wants of this resilient and culturally rich community are overlooked. . So, this Valentine’s Day, we want to remind the Greek communities that we work with and work alongside that we see you, we hear you and we will continue doing all that we can to involve you and make you feel supported. . For more information about our mission, how we work with the local Greek community and how you can support our holistic, people-centric approach, head to our #linkinbio. . #valentinesday2020 #dignityforall #togetherwiththegreekcommunity #camptocampus
  • Last Tuesday evening, we at Movement On The Ground hosted an inspiring event filled with insightful presentations and panels, stimulating conversations and authentic art and culture in Amsterdam titled, ‘The Unveiling Of Our New Movement’! . Present on the night was a beautiful blend of MOTG founders and office staff, long standing Movers, donors, new faces and of course, our dedicated ground team. . The goal for the evening was to energise and enlighten all attendees with our ambitious plans for the future, rolling out our #CampToCampUs-model across #refugee camps around the world – and we are pretty sure we did! . On the night and in the days following the event, we received some amazing contributions in the form of funds, people power and partnerships, and we would like to extend our appreciation to all those who have pledged! . But never fear; if you weren’t present on the night you can still invest in the future of our organisation.

  • Zone 8 Construction Update! 👷‍♀️💪👷‍♂️ . We are a few weeks into our construction of Zone 8 – a new zone in our Olive Groves outside Moria camp that is set to accommodate residents in dire need of a stable and safe living environment. . We are pleased to announce that construction is going smoothly and rapidly. We have even been able to source our very own ‘Gravel Guard’, a small, yet powerful protector of the newly laid gravel in Zone 8, who keeps it safe under his watchful eye. .
