Are you passionate about making a difference in the lives of women who had to flee their homes? We are seeking dedicated women volunteers to join our team at Huis Ter Heide.

Our Vision

A better world starts with building better communities.   

Movement on the Ground

We are an entrepreneurial NGO that was founded in 2015 on Lesvos in Greece. At the core of all our missions stands our Camp to CampUs approach. Following that 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 October 2023, together with COA, we have been implementing our Camp to CampUs philosophy in Huis ter Heide, a shelter accommodating 350 registered people, mainly from Afghanistan. Various projects and activities, including a tailoring workshop, beauty salon, sports, ladies gathering evening, 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. 

Curious about our Camp to CampUs approach? Watch the following video:


  • Engage in interactive games and activities with the women of the community;
  • Facilitate open and meaningful conversations to build connections;
  • Provide encouragement and motivation to inspire the community to be more active and engaged.

  • Commitment to volunteering two or three full days per week at Huis Ter Heide;
