HELPING PEOPLE IN NEED WITH THEIR NEW BEGINNINGS
Sometimes life starts over. NMW is a small non profit volunteer association that aims at empowering those in need to make a new beginning.
We support and develop bottom up projects that match the real needs with private donors and volunteers to maximize impact.
CONNECTING TO SCALE IMPACT
We aim at addressing the mismatch between resources and real needs. We promote community innovation. Our bottom up approach, together with our insight based research, allows us to support or develop projects that have the greatest impact.
CONNECT DONORS WITH REAL NEEDS
We observe, listen to the community, find solutions together and then connect donors with the solution that will create the maximum impact. We develop focused projects to solve a specific problem and aim at finding donors whose profile matches the solution.
CONNECT PEOPLE WITH THE REAL NARRATIVE
We want to change the narrative and bring a positive impact around us.
One person at a time we listen and influence to overcome prejudice and engage people to be part of the solution.

One of the biggest annual fundraising events, Just Cycling, started in 2016 to support unaccompanied minor refugees. Since then, over 200 cyclists, runners and ambassadors have come together to raise funds and awareness for this cause in over 25 countries around the world. Read more on Just Cycling here.
