Free summer school from Hope for Children


Hope for Children will host free summer schools in both Nicosia and Limassol, each lasting two weeks, where those attending will take part in key activities and discussions.

The organisation announced on Thursday that the programme will run from July 3 to July 14 between 9am-3pm at the ‘Youth Multicentre’ in Nicosia. Limassol’s programme is scheduled for July 17 to July 28, during the same hours, at the district’s ‘Youth Multicentre’.

It emphasised that participation is free for all youngsters, adding that snacks and lunch will be provided.

It was further explained that those attending will discuss various issues such as racism, bullying, diversity, hate speech and raise awareness on other topics.

It is hoped, the organisation said, that the programme will bestow youngsters with greater understanding on how these issues impact them and the wider public.

They will also learn what they can do to exercise their rights as young individuals, as defined in the convention on the rights of the child – to prevent any violations.

The activities of the summer school programme are divided into six main areas: cooperation, boosting self-confidence and self-esteem, communication, active listening, problem solving/conflict resolution, empathy, as well as critical thinking.

For more information and on the steps to participate, the programme’s director Anna Charalambous can be contacted via email at [email protected]  or by phone at 22 103 234.
