American Academy in Nicosia become Youth Ambassadors for the Millennium Development Goals

High School Students of the American Academy in Nicosia have joined workshops to become Youth Ambassadors for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In the framework of the EU-funded project 'Youth Ambassadors for MDGs', Future Worlds Center was invited by the American Academy in Nicosia to join forces and organise a project for year 10 and year 11 students, supporting an orphanage in Moldova.
Future Worlds Center offered two introductory workshops for all the year 10 and 11 students about the Millennium Development Goals and about how they relate to our life here in Cyprus. In a second round of follow-up meetings with Mrs Eva Argyrou and the students, it was decided to focus on the MDG 2: 'Achieve Universal Primary Education', and to plan the future project in Moldova around nursery education. The next steps of this project include more detailed planning workshops, identification of project funding sources, and research about nursery education, about Moldova and about the needs of the orphanage.
