Rosa Duran (26), alumna of the Amsterdam BBA (2014) and Master in Management (2016), headed to the Greek island of Lesbos in 2018 to help with the reception of refugees. Now, a year and a half later, she is a coordinator at the aid organization Movement on the Ground. This organization takes a disruptive approach to providing assistance to refugees, which means: more impact than traditional organizations, with fewer resources.
Rosa is grateful for the work she is able to do. “I’ve been very fortunate in my life, so it feels good to give something back.” Rosa cannot predict how long the situation on Lesbos will last. “I hope that aid organizations like ours will eventually no longer be needed here on the island, and that people will no longer have to live in these conditions. Until that happens, I will continue my efforts.”
