The Community Council of Zygi has created the “Donation’s Fund”, which is basically funded by the Cement Industry of Vasiliko. The Donations Fund supports the Community Welfare Committee, which was established with the initiative of the Community Council and with the President of the Council as Chairman, having the in-house care of the community’s elderly as its purpose. Also, the Donations Fund subsidises all the college/university students of the community.
The Zygi-Mari Youth centre was established in 1987.
It is housed in a building at the centre of the community, granted by the Land & Survey Department. It has around 150 members -ages 13 to 35 years old.
The Youth Centre has a soccer team that participates in the AOKNEL federation’s championship and cup. It also has two dance-groups comprised of fifty persons. Every year it organises Christmas and Easter events as well as pool/snooker, backgammon, Ping-Pong, and bingo competitions. It participates in blood donations, tree plantings, and cleaning campaigns and organises lectures about drugs and other subjects that concern the youth. Furthermore it organises the annual community Ball, usually in the midst of summer.
Recently, through the funding of the Vasiliko Cement Industry, it has acquired a soccer field that has turf and will soon have lighting, bleachers, and locker rooms for the conduct of night-time games and tournaments.
