Olive Grove Community Spaces

The Olive Grove Community Spaces project is creating essential socialising and support service spaces on a plot of land adjacent to Moria Hotspot, an overpopulated centre for asylum seekers on Lesvos island, Greece. We need your help to implement much needed improvements that will accommodate new programming for mental health activities, education and play.

Since beginning this project two years ago, more than 300 individuals have contributed to the creation of socialising spaces as an antidote to camp life. This was achieved through a series of activities and trainings that satisfy motivations to contribute when able, support a sense of pride, community and place, and provide opportunities to develop or acquire skills.

Works to date have included an outdoor cinema servicing over 450 people each week, multiple seating areas, site drainage and improvements to circulation through the creation of a staircase leading out of the site, and a collective mural.

As the population has continued to expand so has the need for additional services and activities. Donated funds will be used in support of designing and implementing these essential community spaces directly with residents.

*This project began in 2016 in partnership with Danish Red Cross.

Everyone deserves a place to feel normal. Very sad that could not be in their homes.
