Ears to Our World is proud to announce a newly-formed partnership with World Corps Kenya. World Corps is a non-profit organization that has worked in Kenya since 2001. They were originally formed to address concerns about poverty, particularly the lack of access to energy, information, and economic opportunities in rural areas of developing countries. Their mission is "to provide training and infrastructure to young adults in rural areas of developing countries, empowering them to become effective business entrepreneurs, community leaders and global citizens." We are happy to support this mission with our own.
World Corps staff members, Serah Mucha and Ronald Mdawida, will be working with us to ensure the success of our very first radio distribution project slated for early 2009. We are most grateful for their support.
ETOW would also like to thank Dr. Nyaga Mwaniki, originally of Kenya, and professor of Anthropology at Western Carolina University. Dr. Mwaniki has been instrumental in setting up our partnership with World Corps, and has also graciously volunteered to be on site for the first project. Many thanks to Dr. Mwaniki.
