"Mindy and I have witnessed Starkey's amazing teams create miracles, one after another. The experience of attending a Starkey mission trip is profound and life-changing for all involved. It is a celebration of humanity and shared our global community."
Starkey's mission, "So the World May Hear," is about recognizing our shared humanity in a movement that brings peace and understanding through the gift of hearing. William F. Austin founded Starkey Hearing Foundation in 1984 with the premise: “Alone we can’t do much, but together we can change the world." Starkey Hearing Foundation travels the globe, delivering the transformative gift of hearing to people in need, improving and connecting lives - one by one - community by community - continent by continent. It's a movement that not only teaches, but believes hearing is the answer to many of the world's most critical issues: isolation, poverty, and illiteracy.
