Jasmine grew up and went to school here in Marlow. She is co-founder of Samos Volunteers NGO, and has spent many months there on and off over the past 3 years.
In June 2018 she shared with us in Marlow her vision to start a Legal Centre in Samos to provide a base for volunteer lawyers to work from. A vision became a reality in August 2018 and MRA have supported the project from the beginning.
Although Jasmine is now working to complete the final stage of her training as a solicitor with Curzon Green Immigration and Human Rights Team, she continues to guide the mission and direction of Samos Volunteers.
An ex-Borlase pupil, Dom had recently finished a masters in Logistics at Cardiff when he approached us with an interest in volunteering to help with humanitarian aid for refugees.
After graduating from university, James had a burning desire to travel abroad and work with those that needed it the most.
Despite only planning to be in Greece for 2 months, James ended up staying longer and returned for a second spell in 2020 to manage the Scout Program, supporting the 2,500 refugees through across their three programmes.
