HELPING PEOPLE IN NEED WITH THEIR NEW BEGINNINGS
Sometimes life starts over. NMW aims at empowering those in need to make a new beginning.
We 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 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 VOLUNTEERS WITH THE RIGHT TASK
We help volunteers with information to find the right fit with organisations, projects and teams on the ground. We actively try to understand the passions and talents of each volunteer to suggest to them the most suitable task.
When these two meet,
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.
As the borders closed and the situation moves from crisis management to a longer term need for support, our projects focus on community building, education, new skills acquisition and providing opportunity for interaction with the local community as a prelude to integration. Our goal is to improve life and make sure the months or years of waiting is not time wasted.

Since 2015, almost 160,000 asylum seekers in the European Union were unaccompanied children under 18 years old. A total of 2,300 unaccompanied minors live in Greece, half of which still in unfit conditions. We join forces and pledge to help them find their path in life.
Since 2015, 160,000 children under 18 years old fled to Europe alone or lost their families on the road to safety.
Like all children, they deserve a future too. That’s why we started the Just Cycling challenge.
In 2016, Just Cycling helped 5 children start a new life in Portugal through the groundbreaking program of METAdrasi.
In 2017 we were joined for the first time by runners and hikers from all over Europe. In an emotional show of solidarity, a total of more than 160 people came together to support the unaccompanied minors in Greece.
Together we also sent our message to 60 countries.
We want to continue supporting them by giving as many as possible access to safe, nurturing environments where they can grow and develop.
Currently, there are over 3,000 unaccompanied children in Greece. Over than 2,137 unaccompanied children remain without shelter and protection, (in camps, hotspots, police stations), almost half of whom are estimated to be homeless. These children are in grave danger of abuse and exploitation.
We are continuing the tradition of cycling the paths of Europe to help these children. We will be riding, between the 25th-28th of May, from Amsterdam to the beautiful city of Leuven in Belgium, and back in solidarity with the unaccompanied minors in Greece. We are joined by Just Running, where runners will dedicate their efforts all around Europe from March to October 2018 to support the unaccompanied children.
