AIM (Overall goal you want to achieve by tackling harmful narratives in your local community):
Provide a friendly and safe ground for the youth, Turkish and Greek Cypriots to meet and get to know each other, share their stories, backgrounds and realities in order to break the glass ceiling between the two communities and raise awareness. We want to erase all political and historical stereotypes and prejudices and embrace each other as individuals and eliminate hate speech.
OBJECTIVES (Specific and measurable steps that you will take to achieve your aim):
We will bring the two communities together for a noble cause through donations for the families in Cyprus that are in need, in order to help empower the youth and show that both sides can unite and work together despite our differences. Each community has certain economic and social problems so we believe that, through donating and contributing, we can create strong bonds between people and get pass the negative mindset about each other.
