The Greek island of Lesvos is a fertile paradise. With the purest olive oil, honey and sea salt. For a few years now, Lesvos has also become the island where the refugee crisis has acquired a European face. The locals still have a hard time. And 'newcomers' are stuck in refugee camps in inhumane conditions. Without any future perspective. Together with you we can change that!
We sell gift packages with the tastiest olive oil, honey and salt & herbs from Lesvos. We support local farmers and we stimulate education and entrepreneurship among 'newcomers' on Lesbos.
How it works
The purchase of our products means an income for the local farmers. Hardworking people who make their products with a lot of love and respect for nature. As their companies grow due to our demand, jobs are created for locals and newcomers. And that is exactly what we want!
We spend a fair share of the profit directly on education and giving workshops to newcomers. This increases their chance of a job or entrepreneurship. We invest the rest of the profit in Lots of Lesvos. In this way we build an inclusive entrepreneurial model that brings structural change to the island and achieves ecological, economic and social benefits. Nice circle, right?
Lots of Lesvos is an initiative by The Junglebirds Foundation. The Junglebirds Foundation has been granted the status of Public Benefit Organization (ANBI) by the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration.
