AISC’s Hope for Children Youth Ambassadors were very active promoting children’s rights during Fall 2021. Hope for Children is an international charity helping children stricken by extreme poverty by delivering education, health, livelihoods and Child Rights projects that benefit thousands of children and families each year. AISC’s ambassadors participated in an international conference entitled, “The Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the Welfare of Children” which brought together children, government agencies, local authorities, academics, psychologists, and educators from Cyprus and abroad to discuss the difficulties faced by children throughout the pandemic. One of AISC’s Senior Youth Ambassadors, Kasra, Grade 12, gave a speech during the conference, outlining the ways that pandemic has affected not only him and his classmates, but also their teachers, who persevered through learning new teaching methodologies and supporting students online.  Subsequently the Cyprus' Commissioner for Children's Rights hosted the Youth Ambassadors to discuss the students’ work on “Children's Rights Passports” which will be launched in early 2023. These passports will get information about children's rights into the hands of children all across Cyprus.
