Sean Whalen

Director of Strategic Partnerships

Sean Whalen's current focus with ETI is getting programs up and running in Nicaragua on a self-sustaining basis. He is a 2015 graduate of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, and he looks forward to bringing his experience in policy, advocacy and blindness to the work of ETI. He spent his summer in graduate school working in Managua with ETI. As somebody who is blind, he is well acquainted with how important skills and opportunities are for blind youth. He is eager and excited to work to ensure that young blind children in developing countries have many of the same opportunities that we here in the United States take for granted.
