ears to our world

At ETOW, we believe access to information is access to education. We provide innovative, simple and appropriate technologies to schools and communities in remote, rural and impoverished regions of our world.

Giving Thanks

Etón's donation of hundreds of radios has already reached children and teachers in seven countries on three continents. Photo coutesy of our partner, The Empower Campaign, in Uganda. Dear ETOW Supporters & Friends,

Here in the United States it is Thanksgiving -- a holiday during which we reflect upon all that makes us thankful, and a particularly meaningful occasion for Ears To Our World.

ETOW would certainly not be where it is today without our partners, supporters and friends. Our "thanks" page list is very long--unfortunately, it's impossible to include everyone--but the impact of each individual upon the people we serve is extraordinary, impossible to capture on a mere web page.

We are especially grateful for the support we received very early from Universal Radio and Etón Corporation. We would not have a presence in seven countries, helping hundreds of classrooms and thousands of children without the donation of radios Etón Corporation provided us early this year --  not to mention, our initial leg-up from Universal Radio.  We thank you.

I would personally like to thank our board of directors, for your guidance, your oversight, and most of all your belief in our mission--you've given generously of your time, and even from your own pockets.  We thank you.

Thanks, moreover, to our teachers--who give long hours of their lives to help the students in their care, often for the most paltry pay imaginable; we'd also like to thank you, teachers, for your feedback, which makes our work more useful.  You are most deserving of our sincere respect and appreciation, and we thank you.

In short, we are profoundly thankful...

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Thomas Witherspoon Founder/Director
