OUR STORY

Officially constituted as a Greek NGO in November 2016, the ideology behind Campfire Innovation began formulating more than a year earlier, on the islands of Greece.

Campfire Innovation was inspired by humanitarian aid volunteers who, at the peak of the crisis, sat around campfires on the islands while waiting for boats of refugees to arrive.

Our Mission

At Campfire Innovation we support the growth and dissemination of “Smart Aid”. These are new models of aid where operations are defined by efficiency, empowerment and humane conditions.
