EFL is a socially responsible school; we are proudly involved in several community projects to contribute towards equality. We work with the Srisangwan School, Chiang Mai, using education to overcome disability, through “Building Bridges: Care in our Community” together with the Chiang Mai Expat Club, and Mr. Andy Barrow, who is a motivational speaker and former world-class Paralympic athlete. We collaborate to provide free English language training to staff officers and encourage our teachers to run classes for a range of worthy community projects.
