Iskashitaa's New Food Preservation Coordinator, Kate Faschan

Iskashitaa's New Food Preservation Coordinator,
Kate Faschan
Iskashitaa warmly welcomes Kate Faschan as the new Food Preservation Coordinator. Kate will be working along-side refugees and volunteers using her expertise to manage Iskashitaa's food preservation workshops. Want to get to know her? Here's her Bio!

Kate Faschan arrived in Tucson in August 2012 as Master of Public Health candidate and a Peace Corps Fellow attending the University of Arizona.  Kate served as an HIV/AIDS educator in Swaziland, Africa. There she worked with orphan and vulnerable children as well as under-privileged adults to provide health education as well as life and business skills to those struggling populations.  Her service in Africa made her aware of the need for people to have a chance to develop themselves. She offered this opportunity to Swazi's by facilitating experiential education in fields such as agriculture and food preparation, language skills, arts and craft skills, nutrition, exercise, and personal empowerment. Kate was thrilled have found Ishkashitaa because Iskashitaa's mission mirrors her Peace Corps efforts.  She looks forward to continuing community development with Ishkashitaa.

The next Food Preservation Workshop is October 26th! Email Kate to let her know you are coming!
