Who We Are

We’re a values-driven non-profit committed to providing information and education access to vulnerable populations. Our values underpin our work.

What We Do

We design, manufacture and distribute solar and wind-up MP3 players and radios for use in the humanitarian sector. No one else does what we do.

Get Involved

We love it when people join with us to make information and education accessible where it is most needed. Let’s partner in taking on the need for education access.

“I saw immediately the impact such a radio could have on impoverished peoples in Africa and the world.”
