Jitske graduated as a social worker with a focus on empowerment and liberation of people. At KLM she gave training to employees on committing to the bigger picture and she did a master’s in Neuro Linguistic Programming to understand even better how the minds of people work. As such, she learned how to motivate and unite a large group of people, which is exactly what she did on Lesbos. She coordinated a team of almost 60 volunteers, of which 50 were refugees from the camp. Together they:

  1. Prepared 1300 breakfast per day, that’s the size of 3 restaurants!
  2. Arranged tea for everyone.
  3. Cleaned Moria camp twice per week.

We are proud to have supported Jitske!
