E2W originally took its name from an early venture between London and Tokyo - hence “East to West”. Now that we have flourishing bases on either side of the Atlantic Ocean, the name retains its relevance although our perspective, and that of our clients, is now more global than regional…
A wonderful (if predictable) by-product of E2W’s enlightened policy towards employing working parents is how children feature prominently in the lives of many of our employees and associates.
So, as we’ve started thinking about supporting this or that charity or voluntary organisation, we’ve been drawn to ones with a specific connection to young people.
For example, the UK charity, Friends of GOVI.
GOVI is an extraordinary operation in Africa’s smallest independent country, The Gambia, on the continent’s west coast. Friends of GOVI aims to support the education of blind and visually impaired children and young people in The Gambia, and helped to build the country’s only school for them.

In keeping with our E2W tradition of supporting charities associated with young people, we are sponsoring the Memorial Day Tournament of the Cougar Soccer Club on 24-26th May 2013 in Maplewood & South Orange, NJ.
The Cougar Soccer Club, founded in 1965, has provided the local community with a travel youth soccer program for over 45 years. As a self-funded, not-for-profit organization of parent volunteers, the club promotes youth soccer that is geared for the player who wants to learn, train and play at the very highest levels of competition. www.cougarsoccerclub.com
