Baha’i Blogcast with Rainn Wilson – Episode 42: Brukty Tigabu

February 8, 2020, in Audio > Podcasts, by

Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.

In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.

In this episode, I’m at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where I interview Brukty Tigabu, a dear Baha’i friend from Ethiopia, and winner of the Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award. As a school teacher, Brukty was concerned with the lack of early childhood education in Ethiopia, so 15 years ago, her and her husband started ‘Tsehai Loves Learning’, now the most viewed and award-winning children’s TV show in Ethiopia. In this conversation, we talk about how the show first started, what is was like being raised an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian, and how she became a Baha’i. She tells us about Ethiopia, what she’s currently working on, and she shares some of the challenges she’s trying to overcome. I hope you enjoy the conversation!

Thank you Naysan for this podcast. I learned a lot from her as a teacher. Davos, Switzerland is a nice place too. Based from Rainn’s description.
