MHEDA Member Takes
Mission Trip to India
In January of this year, Starrco President Bryan Carey traveled to Kerala, India, with his Entrepreneur's Organization
as part of a mission trip to a village called Ullannur. The
group, comprised of six men and three women, left for the
12-day trip to India on New Year's Day. The primary aim
of the trip was to interact with the children of Ullannur.
"I thought I was going over there to teach them to throw
Frisbees and before you knew it I was up in front of the class
teaching English," Carey says. "There were nine students,
eight girls and a boy, in the entire fifth grade. I ended up
finding pictures on my phone and having them identify it
in English and then go up to the board and spell it. It was
truly amazing." In addition to spending time with the children and teaching them English, Carey's EO was also able
to make education an option for 21 students who couldn't
afford it previously.
