Social commitment

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. Right To Play protects, educates, and empowers children to rise above challenges and find their way back to hope. It uses 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 lasting impact and empower children with the knowledge and skills to drive change in their lives, their families and their communities. 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.”
