Rosalind Russell of R Star Foundation delivers new specialized crop of corn to Nepal villagers today

Rosalind Russell, R Star Foundation CEO/Founder, departed today for an extended trip to Nepal. Before she left, she met with volunteer Robin Pierson at Adolfo’s for a last Mexican meal for a while, as Rosalind won’t be back until the end of January. 

Robin gifted R Star with “corn” of the Aztec’s, a hearty, healthy crop of colorful corn, which, of course, is not GMO, says Rosalind. This is Robin’s first and very plentiful harvest, which she grew on her Wyoming farm for Rosalind to take to the Nepal, and because of Robin, R Star is delighted to have a new specialized crop to offer selected villagers.

Robin has been to Nepal a few times as well as to the R Star Top of the World – Nepal elementary school to teach classes. She has also volunteered her time and energy on many occasions in several different ways for the sake of the Nepalese people R Star assists. 

While in Nepal, Rosalind will also be overseeing drilling matters and “goats”, greenhouses, and living conditions as she learns the needs of those she works with in her 51 villages with a population that totals 44,000 people.
