08 Sep Discover the 17 projects funded by the Active Citizens Fund Cyprus!
We are delighted to present the 17 projects that have been selected for funding in response to the Active Citizens Fund Cyprus programme’s Open Call (2021).
The funded projects seek to promote citizens’ participation and empower vulnerable groups by intervening in various areas such as sexual health, environmental awareness, social inclusion, digital upskilling, intergenerational exchange and arts-based community building. There are eight funded projects that include a bicommunal partnership, contributing to the programme’s priority to actively support bicommunal cooperation and projects that foster intercultural dialogue. Additionally, four projects will be implemented through a bilateral partnership, involving CSOs from two of the donor states, Norway and Liechtenstein.
