SOS Children's Villages works with communities and local partners to support disadvantaged families across the world.

e2v has also joined the Fauna & Flora International (FFI) Friends Against Extinction group, committed to conserving our precious natural heritage, for today and for the future. FFI acts to conserve threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, guiding people into choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and taking into account human needs
Andy Bennett Chair of e2v’s Charities Committee commented, “Our employees do a great deal to help charities local to our facilities and close to their own hearts. These donations are a way of supporting their ideals about family support and environmental awareness at a global level and we are delighted to be able to support both of these organisations with those aims’.
