Sophia Foundation for Children
The Sophia Foundation for Children represents a team effort to create something tangible that will give a breath of life to the impoverished, ailing and destitute children of Africa.
Specifically, the Sophia Foundation programmes:
- provide breakfast and lunch to orphans and indigent children at the “Saint George” kindergarten in Kibera;
- secure shelter, subsistence, medical attention and education for the 92 children of the “Makarios” kindergarten at Nyeri;
- ensure their education in secondary education schools following their graduation from elementary schools;
The University of Nicosia has decided to actively support the Sophia Foundation’s worthwhile initiative in a variety of ways, such as: offering a number of study scholarships to these needy children, sending volunteers to Kenya as part of the missions there, staging a series of awareness/fundraising and other events, and various other activities.
