Environment & Sustainability
The East West Foundation is committed to helping maintain the precious natural resources that make up the environment in and around the Coastal area on its site.
The Foundation has been instrumental in establishing a waste recycling project and a Coastal Environmental Education Centre for the use of the local community, ensuring the impact on the environment is minimised. All the infrastructure of the foundation, including the various buildings and other equipment are funded solely from donations.
