Plastic Tops Collection for KIVOTOS Foundation

ASPIRE’s students contributed during the year collecting plastic tops for a good cause. The plan was to support KIVOTOS Foundation collecting 50,000 plastic tops which would enable the centre to obtain a free, specially designed, wheelchair for children with special needs. Together with many other schools across the region we managed to reach KIVOTOS’s target supporting the foundation with not just wheelchairs but many other disability aids which help in the daily life of the children together with their families as well.

KIVOTOS Foundation is a special therapy and rehabilitation centre for children with special needs in Paphos. The team of qualified experts at KIVOTOS centre consists of Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists, Speech therapists, Special educators and Consultant Psychologists. The experts apply individual-tailored therapy programmes after a careful assessment of therapy aims for every single child. At the end of each session parents are informed on progress and an individualised home programme is issued.

The idea for collecting plastic tops started slowly on 11th November 2014 in order to collect 50,000 tops but in the end grew in size through the love and the care of the Cypriot people.

Mrs Olga Sofokleous, Founder and Board Members Chairman of KIVOTOS foundation, awarded ASPIRE with an honorary diploma for our students’ voluntary contribution.
