SDG 4: Quality Education

UN-3-INVERTED

At WS Audiology, education goes beyond the classroom to include promoting excellence and global exposure in audiology care and services in different communities.

Our people volunteer their skills and expertise through vocational training sessions to local audiologists and students in many countries around the world.

Improving Lives through Books

  • (July 2019, ZA) For global Nelson Mandela Day, WS Audiology South Africa’s goal was to donate 67 books to the Correctional Services’ Reading for Redemption Campaign in honor of the 67 years that Mandela spent fighting for social justice.

    In the end, the team surpassed their goal and donated a total of 154 books! The campaign’s aim is to build a new culture of reading and learning among offenders at Correctional Services.

Donating Hearing Aids to Young Students

  • (March 2019, ZA) As part of World Hearing Day 2019, employees at Sivantos South Africa met students at St. Vincent School for the Deaf in Johannesburg, to whom they donated hearing aids as part of a “Hear We Are Foundation” sponsorship project. The day was filled with lots of hugs and even a signed performance of the song “You’ve got a friend in me” by one of the classes at the school.

Each student received a WS Audiology pediatric pouch and a WS Audiology “#1” pen, while WS Audiology employees were given a handmade sign-language thank-you note and a poster with all the participants’ photos. A truly heart-warming day!

Helping Feed Schoolchildren in Need

  • (March 2019, IN - See photo above) Millions of children in India are eager to attend school but are unable to do so due to poverty and hunger. The Akshaya Patra foundation provides free lunch to schoolchildren all over India. In 2018, WS Audiology India supported this great project by matching its previous year’s donation of 1.10 million INR (approx. US $15,500), helping to feed almost 1,200 children in need in the Bellary area.

    The secret of its success lies in the foundation’s efficient organization, its use of local markets and its scalable production. WS Audiology looks forward to continuing its commitment in the years to come.
