About Us


Ears Inc. is an Australian, not-for-profit, non-denominational Christian association of audiologists, audiometrists and allied health care professionals dedicated to the training and equipping of health workers in developing countries, so that they can assist in the rehabilitation of the hearing impaired who would otherwise not have the capacity or opportunity to overcome their disability.

Ears Inc. provides ongoing training and support to local workers of health clinics, hospitals, deaf schools and mission groups in developing countries. Through this training, these volunteers are equipped with the necessary skills and resources to rehabilitate people with hearing loss and help them become self-sufficient and independent.


We respect and value people and their individual needs regardless of age, race, gender or religious affiliation

We are committed to passing on the love of Jesus through our words and actions

We act consistently with our Mission and Vision being honest and transparent in what we do and say


Ears Inc. was officially recognised as an Australian, non-government, not-for-profit organisation in December 1998. Founded by David Pither and Peter Bartlett, the idea to start the organisation came about during a short term mission trip to Surigao City, Philippines. David, having spent the previous decade travelling to developing nations was joined by Peter in recognising the possibilities of utilising Australian resources and expertise to train and equip local health workers in developing countries, providing them with the necessary skills to rehabilitate people with hearing loss.
