Our first project, aims to enhance accessibility to life-changing hearing aids for underserved communities in Jordan. Additionally, we provide essential speech therapy sessions to empower every child so they actively engage and thrive in their educational development.
Our beneficiaries come from all over the country of Jordan. We provide hearing aids to refugees and Jordanians alike. Our initial focus was fitting 52 children, both boys and girls, who suffer from hearing loss. This Fall, our goal is to provide another 50 children hearing aids.
Through restored hearing, children and adults are able to participate in society without suffering the limitations of hearing loss. In that way, their dignity is restored, and they gain additional access to education and potential work opportunities.
Sham, a little 6-year-old girl in excitement of hearing again, cried out to her dad, “Papa!” as the smile on her face was ear to ear.
In April 2023, 3DP4ME successfully completed our Hearing Express pilot in Jordan. We provided 52 children (ages 6 -12 years for girls and boys equally), who suffer from hearing loss with high quality hearing aid solutions.

We plan to establish and cultivate a reproducible, sustainable model, leveraging 3D printing and 3D ear scanning technology.
We are focused on a cost-recovery model for long-term sustainability.
*This pays for the exam, hearing aid electronics, 3D custom ear molds, and traditional or rechargeable batteries.
Our operating costs are separate.
