‘Back to School with Hope’ from “Hope for Children” UNCRC Policy Center

“Hope For Children” UNCRC Policy Centre (HFC) in partnership with the Andrey & Julia Dashin Foundation announces for the second year the launch of the campaign “Back to School with Hope” to offer free school supplies to low-income families in Cyprus, as part of HFC’s program “Eradicate Child Poverty in Cyprus”.

Education is the key to a bright future and investing in education is a top priority for us. Therefore, the target is simple… to help as many students as we can to start the new school year with the necessary school supplies. The public’s contribution and our team effort should be demonstrated so that we can properly equip children in need and to spread the message to the society that even a small contribution to our fellow citizens constitutes a significant assistance. The campaign will be ongoing from September 2014 to January 2015.

On September 19th, an event for collecting school items will take place at Kimonos Square in Larnaca, from 17:00 until 20:00 in order to receive as many school supplies as we can for the “Back to School with Hope” campaign. The public can attend the event to drop new school items or used items in good condition. The event is organized in collaboration with the Larnaca Municipality and the information centre Europe Direct Larnaca.

On September 28th, from 17:00 until 19:00 Revealed Square in Nicosia, another event for collecting school supplies will take place at Faneromeni Square in Nicosia. The public can attend the event to drop school items players of APOEL will be present to sign autographs. Both events in Larnaca and in Nicosia will be covered by a live link by Deejay Radio.

If any institution wishes to get involved in the campaign “Eradicate Child Poverty in Cyprus” and for more information and details about the collection points please contact “Hope For Children” at 96 317873 or at 22 103234.
