In 2018 we were nominated for the Regional Peace through Sport Initiative at the Peace and Sports Awards
In 2017 we were nominated for the #BeInclusive EU Sports Award by the European Comission
Made by Cypriot girls for ALL women and girls in Cyprus
SPORT: A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE!
Sport is a powerful tool to bring people together.
Many women have crossed the divide and/or met someone from the other community for the first time with CYPRUS GIRLS CAN.
CYPRUS GIRLS CAN was nominated for the 2017 #BeInclusive EU Sport Awards by the European Commission for the work we do to bring women from all over Cyprus together.
CYPRUS GIRLS CAN
provides Inspiration for women all over the island
female cyprioT athlete
The achievements of sports women in Cyprus rarely make mainstream media and sadly these athletes remain unknown to most.
Every month we interview a female athlete from Cyprus. We share their stories online, giving them the recognition they deserve.
By sharing thir real life stories, we help raise their profile, giving them the recognition they deserve.
At the same time we show how they are 'normal' women just like the rest of us - with families, jobs and responsibilities.
CYPRUS GIRLS CAN promotes a healthy, active lifestyle - for both the body and the mind.
Let's make TWO things clear:
1. Doing exercise is not just about losing weight.
It can be, if you want it to. But it is so much more than that.
It is about finding the rhythm in your life, finding an outlet to channel energy and finding energy you didn't know you had!
You CAN weave sport into your life, around your career and around family life.
Being a Mother does not mean not spending time doing things for you. Your children will also gain so much if their Mother is fit, healthy and more relaxed- these are the gifts taking part in Sport give
2. This campaign does NOT aim to segregate women from men.
We hope to merely provide the initial seed - be that information or inspiration- for women and girls started in, and remain in sport. The long term goal is have females on the island join, or open, sports clubs which integrate all of society.
Sometimes we just need need a little nudge in the right direction to get going :)
Enjoy Your Journey!
