What is The Malta - Czech Cultural & Friendship Society ?
The Malta - Czech Cultural & Friendship Society is a social organization which groups people of specific interests on a voluntary basis. The stautory aim of the society is to tighten ties and co-operation between Malta and the Czech Republic
Guided by the principles of Malta's foreign policy. our friendship society engages in activities to strengthen ideas of Peace and Friendly relations between nations and to popularize knowledge about life of the Czech nation - their culture, history, science and other achievments - throughout Maltese society, to develop comprehensive and mutually advantageous economic, cultural and scientific/technological co-operation between Malta and the Czech Republic.
The society organizes ceremonies marking national holidays and historical anniversaries of our befriended country as well as lectures, film and video screening, friendship soirees, concerts and exhibitions, the management of the society's club an information centre etc., are among the most typical and wide-spread forms of the society's activities.
Maintaining contacts withe societies of friendship with the Czech Republic in other countries and organizing meetings with delegations from the Czech Republic and the Czech Community in Malta are also important forms of the programmatic activities of our society.
An other useful form of activity which we hope to start in the very near future is to start Czech languages courses for Maltese citizens and to organize holiday tours to the Czech Republic.
Our Society is financed solely out of members. contributions, from revenue flowing from events and published materials and sometimes from donations.
The General Assembly is the highest authority of the Malta - Czech Republic Cultural & Friendship Society.
