Serving as a missionary in Nepal is Karin Feltman, a long-time member of St. Margaret’s, Lawrence. She worked at Lawrence Memorial Hospital for 23 years as an emergency nurse, and later the patient advocate, before moving to Nepal in 2014.
She is the head of TEAM’s Women at Risk Initiative and fights human trafficking through awareness education. She also is responsible for empowerment programming aimed at strengthening education and income opportunities for girls, women, and the most vulnerable in society.
Current programs that Karin oversees include :
- An ongoing scholarship program for 42 children from two villages who are at-risk for human trafficking;
- A women’s group that earns income making washable, reusable, eco-friendly sanitary pad kits for free distribution to girls in the village schools
- A “Basics of Business” course that is helping women in the village start small businesses of their own.
Karin’s mission is to create a safe Nepal, where people can live lives free of human trafficking and other forms of marginalization and exploitation. She also has a passion for sharing the light and love of Jesus to those around her, through her life and work.
