Welcome to Movement On The Ground's action platform!
WE BELIEVE THAT EVERY HUMAN BEING FORCED FROM THEIR HOME HAS THE RIGHT TO LIVE IN DIGNITY WITH THEIR HOST COMMUNITY.
Motivated to bring change to the humanitarian field, Movement On The Ground's mission is to transform ALL refugee hotspots towards safe, healing and enabling environments. We believe everyone, no matter who you are or where you're from, should live in a healing and self-sustaining environment.
We are rooted in the refugee community to transform refugee camps from within. We do what needs to be done in order to create sustainable change with and for people forced from their homes. Our position within the community gives us direct insights into unaddressed needs which we fulfil with human-centred programs and solutions.
At the core of the Movement On The Ground mission is the ‘Camp to CampUs’ philosophy,the concept of transforming refugee hotspots into dignified environments. Places where refugees feel empowered and included in the running of services and projects. Where both host and hosted community can feel included, valued and connected. Our Camp to campUs philosophy is something that we have developed and nurtured, and we are now realising just how impactful this approach is in relation to the reception of refugees across the globe.

Summerisation 2021 ☀️13-07-2021 | 11:40 For the thousands of vulnerable people living in and around camps on the Greek islands, summer is a season of survival. Long 40 degree days in the hot Aegean sun, tossing and turning at night in an overheating tent, fears of dehydration due to limited access to water and burnt and bitten skin as sunscreen and mosquito repellent are hard to get. That's why we are rolling out SUMMERISATION, this process helps to safeguard a person or community against harsh summer conditions by providing them with protective equipment. OUR GOAL To protect the residents of RIC Lesvos this summer, we desperately need to construct shaded areas in all community spaces and in all walkways. And we need to do this fast. We also need to continue equipping tents with fans and make sure that we have enough funds for maintenance and replacements across the remaining summer months. To make this possible, we need to raise a total of €50,000 to assist with the summarisation of RIC Lesvos, with and for the community. DO YOU WANT TO HELP? What can I do? Reduce the risk of sunstroke and give residents of RIC Lesvos a protected space to gather under by their tent. Bring relief for residents during the day and night by helping to equip every tent with a functioning fan. - A tent pack for cooling and protection To provide up to 5,000 residents with a cool and comfortable night sleep donate €15 (with additional fan per tent, maintenance and repairs) - A community shelter pack for sun safety To reduce the risk of sunstroke and give residents a protected space to gather in RIC Lesvos donate €100 (covers: 8m2 of shading material and build costs) or to help us provide a whole area of shading donate €240 (covers: 18m2 of shading for a whole zone).
