About the Hear the World Foundation
The Hear the World Foundation, initiated by the Sonova Group in 2006, supports projects around the world enabling children with hearing loss to develop appropriate to their age. The foundation focuses on projects in low- to middle-income countries which give children with hearing loss access to audiological care. To this end, the non-profit Swiss foundation provides funding, hearing technology as well as on-site expertise to train local professionals. The expertise is provided by Sonova Group employees who work on a voluntary basis for the foundation. Furthermore, the foundation has been supported by over 100 prominent personalities such as Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Cindy Crawford, Annie Lennox and Sting as ambassadors for healthy hearing.
