Founded by a group of independent business people and creatives who were touched by the European refugee crisis and called to action, Movement On The Ground has evolved into a team of like-minded individuals determined to bring change to humanitarian field. We believe every human being forced from their home has the right to a dignified reception. We envision a global Movement of people, organisations and governing bodies ensuring every human being forced from their home receives a dignified reception.
We stand with and for people on the move. We build bridges with the local communities where we work. We acknowledge the dire circumstances, but remain optimistic about the positive change that can be achieved. We ensure refugee environments are safe, healing and enabling using our Camp to campUs philosophy. We work shoulder-to-shoulder with all stakeholders, including the local host community, governing bodies and other organisations.
We want to change the public perception of what it means to be a 'refugee'. We want to drive sustainable change with and for people on the move. Ultimately, we want to help pave the way for people on the move to integrate into their future society.
We are still small and we don't have all the answers, but we aim to fill in the humanitarian gaps wherever it is most needed.
