O griko rotà agapi.


It could be that the walls, the trees, the earth, the very sky would not believe their own ears after hundreds and hundreds of years during which they only used to listen to Griko, as they suddenly now have to listen to a language they just do not understand.

Probably to them it is as though their land has been invaded by an alien people. Foreigners who have won the war and have expelled the Griki from their homes.

Thus, little by little Griko gets thinner and thinner, loses its words and the people, who speak it, go away.

It is likely that Griko cannot go back to being talked as it used to be talked. It may be that Griko dies but we do not want it to die in this way.

We would like Griko not to fade away, we want it to live on for a long time to come, we want it to be spoken again.

We would like to set up an association of people who love griko, that are willing to talk it, and those who, even if they cannot speak Griko, wish to commit themselves so that this language is not lost.
For this reason, even with the help of the web, we want this idea to come up everywhere near and far.

We want to enrich Griko with forgotten words and add new ones that have their root in Griko words and in other languages​​.

We want to report (in Griko) news on the web from our towns.

We collect and store the voices of those who speak Griko, in order to spread them on the internet.

We might ask you to help us in carrying out this idea, but help is not enough. The aid may be granted for one time, for two, even one more time, but then it finally runs out. For what we mean to do, simple help is not enough.
To do all this we need love.

Griko needs love.
