Solar Ear - About Us



We wish to get children before the age of 3 a hearing aid which will give them the ability to hear and therefore the opportunity to communicate. These children will then be able to go to a public school, as there are few schools for the deaf, especially in developing countries.

We train, hire and employee people with disability as we know that people with a disability are people with a disability and not a disabled person. We look at the whole person and give them the opportunity through work to demonstrate their personal abilities.


Using the power, philosophy and infrastructure of a social business we developed a proven holistic hearing health program to accomplish our mission.

This program horizontally integrates programs and internationally recognized protocols in hearing Detection, Research, Education, Equipment and Training (DREET).

DREET will reverse hearing loss globally in a sustainable business manner using the latest renewable lowest cost technology. We want to democratize and socialize the hearing aid industry by bringing very affordable products and services to the people through our new mobile DREET program.



We manufacture quality products and back it up with a full 2 year warranty.


We use a bottom-up approach when we innovate. It was our workers who are deaf who invented the first rechargeable hearing aid, and the first solar charger. They have been awarded The Tech Award, The World Technology Network Award and Verizon Health Innovation Award.


We are not a charity but a sustainable social business.  We use our profits to replicate and scale our social mission. Our products are environmentally friendly. Our hearing aid batteries last 2-3 years versus 7-10 days of a common battery.


Our workers who are deaf have shown through their innovation and abilities that everything is possible! They also travel the world teaching their skills to other people who are deaf.

Believe in Yourself

A social business gives people with a disability the opportunity to show their abilities. For example, in developing countries, people who are deaf speak in sign language, therefore their hand-eye co-ordination is more developed than most people. We need this special ability to micro-solder the electronic components in our hearing aids.
