  • Descrição


    This is a grassroots NGO that has been working with displaced people since 2017. We currently have projects in France (Calais), Serbia (Subotica, right now not active) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (Sarajevo).

    In Calais, we operate a WASH centre and mobile distributions of tents. The centre is a safe and warm place where people on the move can wash their clothes and have access to a community centre. We also take testimonies about state and border violence that beneficiaries are facing regularly as part of BVMN. Please note that the centre has been recently closed by the Town Hall. We hope to reopen soon however in the meantime, we are still looking for help to run a mobile laundry service, work on advocacy and distribute tents.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Because of our devoted volunteers, we have been able to grow considerably, and help a lot of people; with that impact, though, comes a lot of responsibility. We take our work very seriously. Because we’re working with vulnerable people who often depend on our services, we expect our volunteers to maintain an appropriate level of professionalism so that we can deliver a high quality of aid, in a dignified and thoughtful way.

    We ask for open minded and dedicated volunteers. Here you will find a community of like-minded and highly committed volunteers. The work can be difficult, and it is not glamorous, but at the end of the day work we do is vital and we support each other as a team.

    We aim to actively promote diversity of thought, culture and background, and therefore we particularly welcome applications from those historically under-represented in this sector.
    We particularly appreciate applications from those who speak languages of the communities we serve (e.g. Arabic), those who drive and know about the maintenance of cars.

  • Ajuda


    Upon arrival you will receive field training. Volunteers in the WASH process laundry and facilitate a safe and welcoming space for people on the move. While the centre is closed, we are going to different locations to pick up laundry. In the late afternoons volunteers provide a mobile distribution of tents in different locations of Calais.

    We work five days a week, with everyone taking Saturday and Sunday off. We also have a free lunch for every working day!

    The context we work in can be emotionally and physically challenging. Although we would like to welcome everybody, it is important to consider your personal boundaries and limitations, especially if you do not have experience in this field, although this is not a requirement. We ask that volunteers are proactive, willing to listen, learn and work as a team.

  • Acomodação


    We have housing available for volunteers for 300 euro for the first month (described as the 8 euro daily fee on workaway), after this it is free of charge no matter how long you stay. You will share a room with one to three other people. Unless otherwise requested, rooms can be mixed gender. We recognise that this initial contribution can present a financial barrier to volunteering. If this would be your case, please reach out and we can discuss how we can help.
    We provide one meal per working day for volunteers. All other meals are at your expense.
