Neighbour to Neighbour ( is a virtual neighborhood that aims to facilitate information sharing between all communities in Cyprus.


When people look for something, for example a dentist or a car repair shop,  they often ask their neighbors or friends to make a recommendation.  Neighbor to Neighbor uses the same concept to create a virtual neighborhood where people can share information and guide each other to access services anywhere on the island.


Although Cyprus is physically divided we can build relationships between all communities by building on the concept of neighborhood. We believe that people on the island share similar values, and have similar needs and desires for their future. Our project aims to create a virtual “word of mouth” system where people can recommend and/or provide first hand advice about services, products and places. In this way, Neighbor to Neighbor aims to increase the number of daily interactions between all communities living in Cyprus.


The platform can also help to support collaboration between professionals. Through transparency and information sharing this project can stimulate professionals to adopt international standards in service quality and create a culture of striving for professional excellence.

This project can change Cyprus a lot. Once it's out there, it will be as useful as Facebook or any other essential social media tool. It is needed here and I am happy to help it grow.

A great way of building confidence between two communities...

Over the past four decades, policy makers (say politicians) have been discussing on Cyprus conflict but they ignore the fact that bringing two communities closer is fundamental and strictly essential during peace process – given the fact that the only residents are not the head of states or prime ministers, but thousands of the inhabitants living in Cyprus island.

cont... This is good project potentially to build and facilitate e-bridge between two communities regardless the distance between them. The value added of such projects contributes and strengthen the relationship between two communities.
