July — November 2022
I was happy to bring my love for people, sport and stories together while working on content and communications for KLABU — the social startup and sportswear brand supporting refugees.
KLABU facilitates sport and builds clubhouses around the world where refugees are rebuilding their lives. Its projects, focused on mental relief and social cohesion, are currently active in Kalobeyei (Kenya), Cox’s Bazar (Bangladesh), Lesvos (Greece), and Ter Apel and Amsterdam (The Netherlands).
In September 2022, I got the opportunity to visit the newest project in Lesvos, to launch the clubhouse and bring to life a campaign to introduce the project. This campaign focused on the stories and experiences residents who were in the Mavrovouni camp while going through their asylum procedures. We celebrate their ‘unbeatable spirit’, hope for the future, and how sport supports them.
