Helping our Youngest: Infant Health and Orphanages
Since 2000, EF has supported the March of Dimes, an organization dedicated to improving the health of newborn babies, through donations, fundraising and community events. In 2006 we were awarded the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Humanitarian Award by the March of Dimes for our contributions.
In 2004, EF's Cultural Care division spearheaded the "Kids First" campaign to sponsor some of the world's neediest children in orphanages in Russia, South Africa and Brazil, as well as children impacted by Hurricane Katrina. Over US$100,000 has been raised to date by staff, families and au pairs.
