Kimmie Weeks has worked to alleviate poverty and human suffering in Africa and around the world since he was fourteen years old! In 1998, he released a groundbreaking report on the Liberian government's involvement in training children as soldiers. As a result, former Liberian President Charles Taylor made several attempts to assassinate him until he was granted political asylum in the U.S. He then founded Youth Action International which has benefited more than 150,000 people in six post war African countries. Kimmie tours widely giving enthusiastically received key note speeches on college campuses and at conferences nationwide.
