About the charity – EtonHouse Community Fund:

EtonHouse Community Fund (ECF) was set up in 2015 by EtonHouse International Education Group to give back to society. Today, ECF is an independent Institution of a Public Character (IPC) charity and a member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). ECF has invested over $3 million in various programmes, impacting over 16,000 children and youth.

ECF changes lives one child at a time. Sonia, an ECF beneficiary, has had a difficult start to life. Brought up by a single mother, she looks forward to the ECF Joyful Learning Programmes offered weekly. The ECF sessions have helped her with her reading and writing and have given her the confidence to tackle challenges in primary school, setting her up for success in school and life.
