  EXPATRIATES ASSOCIATION
 


Agios Theodoros Soleas is a beautiful little village which is built on the foothill Troodos. It is 50 km away from Nicosia.

The lack of transportation means has lead to the abandonment of the village. The young people moved in the big cities of the island seeking for a job. The few people who remained in the village are very old. A group of people, originated from Agios Theodoros Soleas, decided to organize an Association in order to conserve the memory of their village. Thus, they organized the Expatriates Association. The protagonists of this idea were Andreas Alexandrou, Neoklis Filaktou, Dinos Theofilaktou and Andreas Kostantinidis. The institutive meeting was on May 1987. The registration was made in the Ministry of the Interior and the name of the Association was Expatriates Association of Agios Theodoros Soleas. The president is Andreas Alexandrou.

The members of the Expatriates Association organize several parties, meetings and balls so that the children of the expatriates meet each other and get to know the history of their village.
On the same time, they are trying to help the old inhabitants of the village to have a better life.

The Expatriates Association has contributed economically for the construction of the road that leads to the church. For many years, the inhabitants had to walk in a small path to reach the church which is built outside the village. It has also helped for the paving of the church’s yard. The next goal of the Association is the creation of a community park which will become a center of attraction for many expatriates.

During the last years, many expatriates have returned to their homeland and they have built small houses for their holidays.
