Garcia started a collaboration with Terre des Hommes on 1 October 2021 on the GOOD (Get Out Of the Devadasi system) project, which combats sexual exploitation of young women in India. Terre des Hommes helps families with young people to create an alternative income to support these families. By providing education and information, young women learn to stand up for their rights and fight against exploitation within the Devadasi community in North Karnataka.
