Tendekayi Katsiga

Founder-CEO

Based in Botswana, Tendekayi produces high quality low-cost solar powered hearing aids made for deaf people by deaf people. Most children in Africa cannot sustain use of hearing aids due to lack of electricity or the cost of batteries – solar power solves this problem of accessibility. Deaftronics now operates in Mexico, Singapore, China, Jordan and India, and have sold 10,000 hearing aids and 50,000 batteries to over 40 countries. Tendekayi has also worked on creating sign language dictionaries for banking and HIV vocabularies.
