Main Impact results

As a family business, we have been working hard on our vision since 1998: making good hearing accessible to everyone in the world. But what exactly does this mean? Discover our projects and the impact we make. A selection of the impact we have achieved:

More than 130

people trained in Audiometry

It starts with better education. For example, we teach audiometry and teach people how to take hearing tests, make earpieces and repair hearing aids.

More than 2000

hearing aids donated

For every hearing aid sold, we currently donate to the Nepal Foundation for Better Hearing Worldwide. In recent years, we have also made major contributions to other projects where we donated hearing aids abroad.

More than 6600

helped people in third world countries to get a better hearing

The combination of donating hearing aids and providing training makes good hearing accessible.

1998 Kenya

Project Eardrop Foundation

According to the Novib method, our impact starts with “better education”. In collaboration with the Eardrop Foundation, we taught audiometry and taught people how to take their own hearing tests, make earmolds and how to repair hearing aids themselves. The focus of this initiative was aimed at children with hearing impairment.

2002 Indonesia

Project Bertha Muller School With Former Teacher

For this project we collected hearing aids for 2 schools for the hearing impaired in Indonesia. This was in combination with material for making ear impressions and batteries for hearing aids. At the time, this was in collaboration with a former teacher at the Bertha Muller School in Utrecht Netherlands, which is now called the Auris Fortaal school in Utrecht.

2018 to present Nepal

Project Child Welfare Organisation Nepal (CWON)

For every hearing aid sold on our website, we donate to Child Welfare Organization Nepal (CWON). We also collect and refurbish old hearing aids and donate them to Child Welfare Organization Nepal. In 2021, a group of Online Hearing Aid Hearing Aid professionals in Nepal will teach audiometry to teach the local population how to independently set up, adjust and repair hearing aids.

2021 Nepal

Audiological trip to Nepal

In March 2021 two hearing care professionals from Online-HearingAids.com will travel to Nepal. We organize a hearing week together with some local activists. During this hearing week we go to a different village every day. The local population is called upon to report if they have hearing problems. Our hearing care professionals will then conduct hearing tests and set up and donate hearing aids to the local population.
(Due to COVID-19 measures, this trip has been moved from March 2020 to March 2021).
