S3E14 ANGELS ON MY PATH : Jean Leonard Kagabo

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
― Maya Angelou

After being stranded by the roadside, an incredible chance encounter by a stranger started Jean on the path to tell his story and commit it to pen and paper. What initially started as a way to document his memories turned into a book filled with an incredibly powerful story of childhood innocence lost , survival, courage, and forgiveness. The Rwandan Genocide against the Tutsi was one of the most horrific events of modern history. 
There is nothing more powerful and riveting than listening to someone who survived this horror speak to you. 
His book, ANGELS ON MY PATH (available on Amazon) is a must read. An excerpt from the book:

“What do you do when you’re twelve years old and your neighbors turn into your worst enemies? It was happening in 1994 throughout the tiny country of Rwanda, where Hutu extremists shot, chopped, clubbed and speared 1.1 million Tutsis, their fellow Rwandans, in just three months. It was the most efficient large-scale slaughter in history. This story carries you off to East-Central Africa and into a delightful childhood interrupted by circumstances that force young Kaka to leave home with a cousin his age, a nine-year-old sister and a six-year-old brother.”

S3E11 Jean Eudes Benecyo – The African Boss

In 2017, Jean Eudes Benecyo, our Founder and CEO, had an idea to help entrepreneurs and businesses. He decided to create a simple directory of businesses where people could learn about businesses near them. But in time, he realized it was not a sustainable idea and it evolved in what you see today. Today, this has evolved to sharing business stories (through the Magazine, Podcast, TV, Books,…) and also helping these businesses by developing marketing tools (Websites, Apps, Email and Social Media Management, Paid Social Media Ads, etc) for them to increase their business revenues.
