Since graduating from Loughborough with a Politics degree in 2010, Rustom Marker has been working for an NGO, helping to set up an ecotourism programme which brings foreigners to a small community to experience a different side of life in Guatemala. The project helps the community financially, creates new jobs and introduces environmentally-friendly technologies that also make farming more efficient.
