About Us

Our Story

We are local teachers, professors, and small business owners working with refugees. Together, we want to create an opportunity where refugees can improve their education,  learn and grow their skill sets. As  members of the community we know the difficult economic situation faced by the people of Lesvos, and the difficulties of the refugees arriving here.  The terrible conditions at Moria camp have been reported on extensively by international media, so we aren't here to tell you how bad things are.
Stand By Me Lesvos is a different type of Non Profit, we are taking a bad situation and with very little funds, working to make a safe, positive space, where we can train and teach refugees, and advise them on how to reintegrate from the margins of camp life, back into mainstream society.
While international NGOs come and go, here in Lesvos: we live here, we share our home with the refugees and our commitment and our projects are for the long term.

We are all in this together

Under regular conditions, we provide education opportunities in different area, but during the corona crisis we had to undertake completely new tasks. Refugees came to us and asked for help, so we are very glad to be able to support these self-organized teams in Lesvos.
Please consider supporting them and their work with a donation through us.

Our Team

We are a small team of Greeks and some other Europeans who work both with refugee self organizations and Greek volunteers to help in various villages and cities on Lesvos island. Without the participation of refugees our work would not be able. So we are a group of Greeks, Afghans, Iranians, Pakistanis and Syrians.
