About Us

Our Team

We are a group of audiologists, speech pathologists, social workers, counselors, allied health professionals, and others who have joined together to help develop sustainable, local hearing and allied health care in developing countries. We welcome as partners governments and NGOs who are willing to work together to help the deaf and hard of hearing in their nations.

Global Village Partners is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation in the United States established in April 2017. Our work as individuals and small groups volunteering in developing countries has been growing and expanding over the past several years to the point that it was helpful to have a more formal organizational structure to facilitate sustainability and growth.
