Eastern Cape Hellenic Youth Association – ECHYA

ECHYA (Eastern Cape Hellenic Youth Association), tucked far away in the Eastern Cape, resembles and idyllic and somewhat secluded Greek island possessing a profoundly family-orientated community. ECHYA aspires to unite its people and highlight Hellenic culture, language and religion throughout the year ahead. Increasing youth participation at events is another goal of ours as we hope to provide a platform upon which younger hellenes can interact with each other on a nationwide scale. We would like to share with our youth the warm and extraordinary feeling of being able to say that we have friends in most major South African cities.
