The Youth of the Cyprus Friendship Program
Geoffrey Fenner of the Olney Rotary Club brought two Cyriort girls, Xenia (Greek 15 year old) and Zehra ( Turk 16 year old) to give a 20 minute power point presentation. The two girls staid with a family for two weeks and are staying with Geoffrey for two weeks. The only way the girls can speak with one an other is in English. Both girls live in a city that is on the UN impose Buffer Zone between Greek (south) and Turk (north) Cyprus. They shared a room and the program is to promote mutual respect. They are the future Cyprot leaders on a mission to get rid of prejudice. Geoffrey explained a Rotary vision for global application of the peacebuilding model that was successfully used in Northern Island and that is presently building peace in Cyprus.
