About Because We Carry

In late august 2015, three young women from Amsterdam left for Lesvos. In their luggage, over one thousand baby carriers – donated by hundreds of concerned people – for deprived mothers with children seeking refuge and safe-haven in Europe.

Once arrived on the small Greek island they encountered a situation worse than they could have imagined. The human desolation was immense. People suffered from hunger and cold. These people – stranded on the shores of Europe – needed help, urgently.

It was this moment that three friends decided to act according from what they’ve learned from Ghandi in their yoga experiences, and become the vehicle for the change they wish to see.

What YOU can do

We believe in the power of people and with that we are creating a movement. We work with rotating teams of volunteers from all over the world who want to turn their powerless feelings into power. #Bethechange!

These volunteers come to support those who left war and conflicts. They bring donations with them given to them by friends and family and with these donations combined with the power of our own network we try to do as much a possible to continuously improve the Kara Tepe campus.

Apply as Volunteer

The donations gathered by the volunteer teams provide for their own funding and accommodation; each donated euro thus goes straight to its purpose.
