Episode 06 Michel Chikwanine author of Child Soldier
Michel Chikwanine authored the book Child Soldier When Boys and Girls are used in war. It’s a phenomenal illustrated children’s book that does a wonderful job of taking this brutal heart-wrenching story and making it appropriate for children. Michel is a native of Congo now living in Canada. His story is one of unbelievable tragedy, and of a young man's resolve to not be ruled by hate. Michel is a truly amazing individual in that he has taken his life’s hardships and made them a growing point for the entire world. Check out this episode of the podcast where Michel talks about being abducted and forced into being a child soldier, his escape, and how he became a refugee in Canada. Even at an hour we just scratched the service of his story, but you can search him on YouTube to see some of his speaking engagements, and of course, check out his book to support his work against child recruitment.

Episode 04 Burundian Refugee
Episode 04 of the philanthropy and nonprofit podcast brings a special guest from Burundi who came on the show to speak about the atrocities being committed by the government in Burundi. Due to our guest fleeing persecution and having family back in Burundi he had to remain anonymous. Burundi is currently producing more refugees than Syria, yet is hardly getting a mention in the news. Many speculate Burundi is on the brink of genocide similar to the one experienced in Rwanda in 1994. Our guest talks of the raids of police on Burundian citizens who oppose the current president’s violation of the Burundi Constitution. This podcast does have some graphic language, stories, and descriptions.
