Program Description:

Program

This is an Applied Global Business Learning (AGBL) trip that is supported by the Center for Global and Economic Studies. AGBL is a unique volunteer organization that looks to assist communities in developing nations. By providing micro-enterprise solutions, it is the hope of the organization to foster sustainable business practices while preserving cultural ideals. Participating students will go beyond their comfort zone as the hospitals and schools run by the Meru Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church are bare-bones operations. Instruction for these trips is very unique and rather sparse. In the classroom, participants will learn how to write a business plan, how to brainstorm ideas, historical data and facts about the country, and a bit about the culture. A paper and some additional meetings in addition to the trip are required.
