Women’s Workshop

Lesvos Refugee Camp

As Stand by Me Lesvos we provide an open space inside the refugee camp specifically designed to encourage women to work and be together in a safe and welcoming environment.

Support us and receive a women’s handmade present! 

About the project

Stand By Me Lesvos believes in making the refugees able to help themselves – this belief translates into the goal to encourage them to be independent and self-reliant, to give them a purpose as well as meaning for their lives inside the camp.

Therefore, in accordance with the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations in the 2030 agenda, we want to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. We want to help refugee women to be productive in their free time and even give them the possibility to be inserted in the work market.

Consequently, we provide a space where they are able to find classrooms featuring language classes, and crafting spaces with sewing machines, fabrics, jewellery items and even a beauty salon.
