A better world starts with building better communities.
We are an entrepreneurial NGO founded in 2015 on Lesvos in Greece. At the core of all our missions stands our Camp to CampUs approach. Following this approach, we build a community, together with (camp) residents. Not for them, but with them. With this approach we stimulate the social participation of newcomers and sustainably facilitate social & local integration within a community.
Since 2022, in collaboration with COA, we have been implementing our Camp to CampUs philosophy, starting initially at AZC Cranendonck and Boxtel, and since October 2023 at Huis ter Heide. Various projects and activities, including a tailoring workshop, beauty salon, sports, music classes, and art, are run to engage the residents in community-building initiatives. By involving the residents of the community to our activities, we make them feel empowered and we give them the chance to use their time, skills and knowledge to make the community better. Additionally, we offer them the chance to acquire new skills that will enhance their prospects of finding employment in the Netherlands.
