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” - arises from the fundamental idea that culture and sport cooperation between civil societies across ethnic, national, social, political and/or religious boundaries can help create stability, peaceful coexistence and social integration. Even though that wars and conflicts may have come to an end, the memories, fear and hatred still linger inside societies and its people. In this conception the building of sustainable peace and stability is not a matter for nation states and governments alone, but something civil society practice through dialogue and inter-action with each other.
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.
