Buyobo College Internships - 2015
2015 Buyobo Intern Karen Bustard

In January 2015, Karen Bustard joined the WMI team for a 5 month in-field internship. She graduated from Tufts University in 2013 with a B.A. in International Relations, and a focus in global health, nutrition, and the environment. In Spring 2012 she studied abroad in Madagascar, where she conducted research in villages within a national park, looking at changes to both development and ecology since the political crisis in 2009. She presented her paper the following year at the Georgetown Conference for Undergraduate IR Research.

Over the past four years, she worked at Urban Tree Connection, an urban farming and community revitalization non-profit in west Philadelphia, where she developed and coordinated their new Teen Apprentice program. Karen will work closely with WMI's Local Director, Olive Wolimbwa, at WMI's Buyobo Headquarters to continue computer training and skills development for our loan program administrative team. She will also visit other loan hubs to provide resource training.
