Cross Cultures - Bringing people together
Cross Cultures (CCPA) is a politically independent, non-profit organisation that exists for the purpose of promoting peaceful coexistence and social cohesion between people of different cultures and backgrounds.
Our vision - "bringing people together" - builds on the basic idea that peace and stability is not a problem between nation states and governments alone because peace and stability is something civil society practice through dialogue and inter-action with each other. Based on this conception CCPA exist with the objective to develop, participate in and implement cultural and sports cooperation across ethnic, national, social, political and / or religious boundaries and with the main purpose to promote reconciliation, social integration and participation of civil society through dialogue and cooperation.
Since 1998, our activities have reached out to more than 950,000 children, 52,000 parents and 79,000 local volunteers across boundaries in conflict sensitive communities, and we have educated over 36,000 local coaches in our specific community based and child centered approach.
Currently, Cross Cultures is active in the following countries
