Victor Ochen grew up in displaced persons camps in Northern Uganda, fleeing from the Lord’s Resistance Army. He emerged from that difficult situation to become a civic leader and peacemaker and this year, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on behalf of war crimes victims in Uganda.

Victor and Mark are old friends, and Victor opens up about growing up in a war zone, losing a brother, and becoming a self-taught social entrepreneur. This is an excellent episode with a truly remarkable global citizen.  Subscribe for free on iTunes or download the app.
