Social commitment

Principles

EFG International draws strength from the principles and values that have underpinned its development since it was founded in 1995. They are described in a summary document and in our Code of Conduct (see link).

 

Right to Play

EFG International is proud to support Right To Play, an international humanitarian and development organization that improves the lives of children in some of the world’s poorest countries. It uses sports activities and play-based programmes to promote the physical, emotional and social development of children in communities affected by conflict, poverty or disease.

Thanks to donations from our employees, EFG can give targeted support to specific projects and, in recent years, has supported a project to assist displaced refugees from Burma/Myanmar. The Thailand Burmese Refugee Programme is active in seven of the nine refugee camps on the border and serves over 90 refugee schools. Since EFG started supporting the programme, the number of refugee children who have benefited has doubled to around 60,000.

Right To Play’s vision is to create a safer and healthier world for children through the power of sport and play. Its work is an inspiration to us all.

“We are thrilled to be working alongside EFG and its key staff to help more children and young people realize their right to play and chance for a brighter future. It is because of the support of people like you that we are able to do the work we do around the world.”

Johann Olav Koss, President and CEO Right To Play International
