Gideon’s Journey: Forward Ever, Backward Never

In this episode, we hear the story of Gideon Wanyama’s arduous journey from small farm to college to joining the hundreds of millions of fellow African youths entering the job market – a generation yearning to contribute to the continent’s growth. It is a journey of ambition, hard work, tremendous family sacrifice, mighty struggles, and hope. “We are moving forward,” Gideon says. For this is his mantra: “Forward ever, backward never.”
