Rosalind Russell  Founder of the R Star Foundation


Rosalind Russell says “I have no background to do what I do, but I have a heart to do the work I am primarily known for both here in The United States and in Nepal.”

Prior to her Nepal involvement, she went to seminary, graduating in 1990, ordained in 1991. She did zillions of weddings and she always has been touched by the love of all the couples  She did other services as an independent minister, not within a church format.  While in Seminary, she began the R Star Foundation for the prison work she has continued to do for nearly 30 years now. She remains active in prison work to this day. 

The R Star Foundation evolved to a program for, “Women Helping Women & children in Nepal”. She started in 2004 by creating a beginning solution for the poorest of villages in the district of Kavre, Nepal which has always been a communist dominated district. In 2008 the R Star Foundation opened a school TOW-Nepal (Top of the World-Nepal), in addition to traditional Nepali studies, Rosalind  created a program to teach  peace for 20 minutes a day. She is the author of the book Reach to Peace as a result of that work.
