Partner search for Youth Exchanges from / to Cyprus
Dear Sir /Madam,
With this letter we would like to inform you about our MARATHON RUNNER
CLUB PHIDIPPIDES FOR PEOPLE WITH MENTAL HANDICAP which was established
in Cyprus in 2006.~ It is a unique club as it is the only one that
offers athletic support to kids and gives them the opportunity to feel
part of the community.~
The main goals of the club are:
1. Educating people with disabilities through sports to integrate into
the wider society.
2.To promote, encourage and develop the spirit of sportsmanship among
people with disabilities and in particular children with special needs.
3.To provide recreational activities for people with disabilities to
the spiritual and moral support.
With the creation of a football team, children have the chance to
participate in football tournaments, attend various social events
including watching football matches, theatres and socialize in
excursions and camping all over the country.
Furthermore, with the participation in a Youth Exchange program we
would like to give children the opportunity to travel abroad and become
aware of different social and cultural realities. Specifically, we are
interested in participating in Erasmus+ Key Action 1 - ~“Youth
Exchanges”, as a hosting or sending organisation. We have so far
organized 3 Youth Exchanges in Cyprus and participated in two other
Exchange Programmes as partners.
Kindly let us know if you would be interested in cooperating with our
organization for a Youth Exchange program and contact us at the email:
