CABW 021: Clara Gonzales Santillan

As a business owner and massage therapist, Clara Gonzales Santillan volunteers her time as she continues to follow her heart and uses the passion and skills of her hands providing massages to help support many non-profit organizations and their fundraising efforts.

She specifically shares about her continuous involvement with the work of the Saruni organization by participating in their annual volleyball tournament in Greeley, Colorado, as a massage therapist for athletes to raise funds and benefit the girls who have been rescued through the organization. The Olooloitikoshi Girl’s Rescue Center (GRC) is now in its 10th year of existence. The GRC home provides a safe haven where girls in Kenya who have been rescued from the tragic practice of marrying young girls to older men can now pursue their dreams of an education and an independent life without fear. As of November 2018, the center has rescued 87 girls who range in age from 8 to 16.

One of Clara’s favorite quotes she has read: “We are not human beings on a spiritual journey but we are spiritual beings on a human journey.”
