I have engaged with EFF since 2010* as a student debater and over the years, the forum has helped me grow through learning and sharing valuable information in the education sector. I highly recommend EFF as it is the platform where you get to learn about unique, emerging and exceptional issues relating to education across the world. You get your questions answered and have the opportunity to establish a rich and skills-enhancing network.
