On September 20, 2014, CARDET disseminated information on 14 of its current projects at the 4th Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) Fair, which was organized by the NGO Support Center and the Cyprus Youth Organization at the Faneromeni square inside the walled city of Nicosia.
Many Cyprus-based Non-Governmental Organizations participated in the Fair aiming to inform the general public of their work and promote their projects, thus attracting more widespread engagement.
