Charities, Fundraising and Community Involvement

Our work with charities, both local and national, has spanned the history of EIC.  The school has always reached out to all types of causes, be it immediate disasters or raising awareness of long term issues or diseases. 

Giving the students both the exposure and chance to understand and volunteer helps them appreciate and reflect on their own privileges. It is also a way to help build local connections to the community; this is important at all times, but during the last year it has proven more vital than ever. 

Below you can find a few of our links with local charities.

Red Cross

Our history with the Red Cross stems back even further, with over seven years of collaboration. These drives are a focal point of our year, with the whole community bringing in donations for families in need. In 2019 we were able to raise over 8000 items of food or equipment.  In recent years, students have helped deliver the donations to the Fuengirola Red Cross centre and see first-hand the need that exists in the local community. 

In 2019 we were honoured to be awarded special recognition of our support towards the Red Cross over the last eight years. The recognition award was given by the mayoress of Fuengirola, Her Excellency Ana María Mula Redruello, at an awards ceremony held at the Palacio de la Paz in Fuengirola.

Morocco Charities

In terms of giving students exposure and experience, our links with special needs schools and orphanages in Morocco have been an extraordinary opportunity. Every year, our students travel to Morocco to visit and help at these institutions; they return impacted and humbled at the work that takes place.

Pro Dunas

Each year, our students travel to our local sponsored dune in Elviria to help this organization repair natural features. The students work in Houses to remove huge quantities of alien plant species and help protect the natural flora and fauna.

DEBRA Butterfly Skin

We have worked with this charity for well over five years. During this time we have held numerous events, including our memorable Rock It! music concerts. These incredible evenings of entertainment from students, singers and bands were organized, with all proceeds going to the charity. Our work with DEBRA has undoubtedly raised awareness of a complex and life changing disease.

Our students regularly volunteer to work in charity shops, as well as participating in Christmas wrapping drives.
