Turkish Irish Educational and Cultural Society (TIECS) is a non-profit, non-political,educational and cultural organization that was founded in 2004 by a group of volunteers comprising of business people, academicians and students. One of our goals is to reach out to people of different cultures, beliefs and professions through various cultural, social and educational activities to support and advance the harmony and cooperation among them. TIECS is a multi-cultural and multi-denominational charity with membersof 35 different nationalities.
We believe that better integration with local communities will contribute to the peace. Getting to know each other will build bridges among our groups. In order to be able to build this peaceful life keeping the diversity of our community, TIECS works hand in hand with Irish and other communities and groups that recognize the same mission and uphold the same values.
TIECS champions a greater understanding between cultures, predominantly using the views of Turkish and Irish cultures, by presenting educational, social and business programmes that unites diversity and communities in a multicultural environment.
TIECS will continue to serve all aspects of the community through education, social and business interaction. We will strive for harmony and understanding in a non-judgemental and tolerant environment that educates society on diversity and multiculturalism.
