Divisions / Motivations

In my work in peace education we deal with the division among Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities caused by the Turkish Invasion. Through our work we aim at bringing together students from both communities in order to bridge the gap established by the division of our country. What gets me going is my desire to see my country reunited through a viable solution.

I started being involved in peace education as a university student since I had the chance to meet Turkish-Cypriot fellow students who shared the same concerns with me. I was convinced that through education we can pass the message of peace to our respective communities, follow up with different activities and, eventually, spread peace all over Cyprus.
