With the conduction of the Greek language courses for Third Country Nationals (TCNs), the integration activities continue in the province of Limassol by the Municipality of Agios Athanasios. The interest in participating was a great fact that demonstrates the importance of language knowledge as a tool for effective integration. There was a similar interest from TCNs in the activities for the politics and culture of Cyprus.
The courses are part of training and education programs aimed at developing skills on a personal level and getting to know the host country, society, culture and civilization.
Due to the great interest for participation, the Municipality of Agios Athanasios will organize twice the number of groups, from 2 to 4. The courses will last 24 hours and will cover 8 thematic units. The character of the courses will be communicative, as it aims to cover basic daily needs of the trainees. Due to the restrictive measures for the pandemic, the courses will be conducted online through the SKYPE platform.
The corporate scheme of the program consists of the Municipality of Limassol, as coordinator and with partners the Municipality of Agios Athanasios, the Municipality of Germasogeia, SKE Mesa Geitonias and the consultants Opinion & Action.
The project “Limassol is a city, the whole world” has been implemented since 2013, offering services to support the process of integration of TCNs in the local community of Limassol. The new implementation period of the program lasts 18 months – from September 2020 to February 2022 – with a budget of € 200,000.
The program is co-financed by the Asylum, Immigration and Integration Fund and the Republic of Cyprus.
