Commitment to Action

So The World May Hear

Commitment by

Starkey Hearing Foundation

In 2010, the Starkey Hearing Foundation committed to improve access to hearing aids for children across the developing world. According to the World Health Organization, 360 million people, or 5% of the global population, suffer from disabling hearing loss worldwide and the current distribution of hearing aids meets less than 10% of global need. Through this commitment, Starkey Hearing Foundation will donate 1,000,000 hearing aids to children in developing countries by the year 2020 with ongoing international missions in partnership with local organizations to ensure quality long-term care.
