Why we need to look at the bigger picture, put humans first and engage:

Thank you for coming yesterday to Filmcafé Onderbelicht! Here we leave you the last episode of “THE JOURNEY”. It is a call out to take into account the bigger picture of every human being leaving their homeland to seek shelter elsewhere. Aboud: “We shouldn’t keep talking about the refugee crisis but the reasons they became refugees”.

From Heumensoord to Lesvos: support activism documentary project!

Our dear friend Laura is going filmmaking in Greece in april. Ever modest and very essential as a friend and in our justPeople collective, she aims to shed light on the people who are stuck between borders and systems, juggling between basic needs, a family in a country in ruins, and hoping to get to a destination where they can rebuild their lives.
In terms of basic needs and safety, refugees, activists and humanitarian aid workers are still struggling every day in a situation that is still much more urgent than what we can see. Check out the video for a short introduction. For more information and to support, visit the crowdfunding page.

Going for a community of learners, going for fun, empowerment and social change!

Power to the Pigeon

We got a nice video to share, thanks to all participants and Basta!

We believe that one of the best ways to learn a language is while doing something else in a cozy and playful atmosphere. And not just doing something, but doing things that enable use to live a more self-determined and autonomous life. How about choosing topics that are important to us and our communities?

Looking back and looking forward: We celebrate one year of solidarity and mutual aid

Dear friends, It’s been a year since camp Heumensoord opened and our community was born; a year full of uncertainties, struggle and frustrations, but also of togetherness, teamwork and action. When we came together for the first time, we were, of course, motivated by the urge to support. However, even more strongly we were motivated… Continue reading Looking back and looking forward: We celebrate one year of solidarity and mutual aid

We are there because we care

Regularly, we visit the refugee camp Heumensoord with some coffee and tea. We wouldn’t have met a lot of the people who now are “justPeople” without this meeting point. We are there because we care. If you don’t have a bike, it can easily take an hour and a half to walk into the city… Continue reading We are there because we care
