In early 2016, we knew we wanted to be involved in a more practical way. The EC family wanted to play a more active role in a project so that we could truly understand the impact of our work. To fully act on the pillars of our CSR Charter (Sustainability, Education and Community), we wanted our next initiative to focus on making education accessible to children who would not otherwise be able to go to school.
Partnering with United World Schools
UWS is an international charity dedicated to improving the lives and prospects of children in some of the world’s poorest regions by giving them the opportunity to receive the education they want and deserve. When EC met with the charity, we immediately knew they were the right organisation to help us accomplish our goal. Before we knew it, our plans were in place and we were on our way to Cambodia.
