The Programme “New Channels for the Integration of TCNs in the local community” implemented in 2017 for the sixth consecutive year. It develops on the basis of the valuable experiences accumulated in previous years, the relations of mutual trust and communication with individual TCNs and their organised groups, but also the participative ethos of TCN communities themselves.
The Programme delivers multiple actions that support different dimensions of the process of integration of TCNs in Cypriot society through
- Providing social support and orientation services
- Creating opportunities for participation in cultural events, sports activities and other forms of interaction with the local community,
- Facilitating the networking and collaboration between associations and informal groups of TCNs with Local Authorities agencies and other local organisations.
It is implemented as a collaborative project by Nicosia Municipality, as the Final Beneficiary, and Ayios Dhometios, Engomi and Lakatamia Municipalities and the Nicosia Municipal Multifunctional Foundation as partners. The consultants «NVK Advent Consulting» and “Losadeal Ltd“ are also programme partners. It is funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund of the EU (90%) and the Republic of Cyprus (10%)
