Karla Rascón-Garcia

Karla is originally from Northern California and received her B.S. in Animal Science at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Growing up in a Mexican household she was exposured to farming, livestock and trips to her parents’ villages in Mexico. Through these experiences she drew a desire to serve those in need and this became an unshakable aspiration in her life. Karla first left the country to volunteer on a farm in Uganda in 2010, and since then has done work in Mozambique and South Africa. From teaching and cooking to starting goat farms and milking cows – living for people locally and internationally is the drive of her development ambitions.
