#ILSCGIVES: $1 from every registration goes to our CSR initiatives

Community Social Responsibility (CSR) is part of ILSC’s DNA. It has been embedded in the ethos of our schools, and interwoven into course content and school activities from the moment ILSC began.

At ILSC, we support a variety of social projects and causes within our local schools, surrounding communities, and internationally, and we’ve been recognized in our industry for our social development and environmental efforts. We put $1 from every registration towards our Learn to Earn Sponsorship program which provides educational scholarships to disadvantaged women in India. We also sponsor Lead 5050 an organization that champions gender equality within our industry.

ILSC’s ongoing CSR activities provide opportunities for our staff, students, and partners to contribute to causes that they care about; to build community and friendships; and to practise and develop language and other skills.
