Aquafy Students Host A.G. Leventis Foundation President
On March 22, 2023, The English School's JA Aquafy student group had the honour of hosting Mr Anastasios Pavlos Leventis, President of the Board of Directors of the A.G. Leventis Foundation, and Ms Loukia Loizou Hatzigavriil, Director of the Anastasios G. Leventis Foundation in Cyprus, at our School.
This followed the successful participation of the student businesses of our Students in the Junior Achievement Cyprus Student Business Exhibition held on March 19, 2023.
Mr Leventis was impressed with the Aquafy students' product that can separate impurities found in water within minutes while also disinfecting it from bacteria and viruses. He mentioned that the Leventis Foundation is eager to support promoting the product in African communities after the necessary laboratory tests have confirmed its suitability.
The A.G. Leventis Foundation has been active in promoting sustainable development and environmental protection on a global scale. Mr Leventis commended the Aquafy students for their initiative to develop activities based on profit and ethical values. He advised them to work hard, stand firmly on the ground, and proceed humbly. He also emphasized the importance of family values and human resources development from within.
The coordinators of the ESJA Club, Ms Elena Michael and Ms Elena Constantinou, expressed their gratitude to Mr Leventis and Ms Hatzigavriil for their contributions. They also thanked Ms Maria Leign, Mr David Lambon, Ms Anna Tellalis, and Mr Paris Cleanthous of the Parents Association for their continuous support of activities promoting entrepreneurship, skills development, and personal growth of the students.
The Aquafy students have shown that they are not only concerned about profit but also about creating products that can make a difference in people's lives. Their commitment to ethical values has earned them recognition from the President of the A.G. Leventis Foundation. Their success serves as an inspiration to other student businesses and entrepreneurs who are looking to create a positive impact on the world.
