After purchasing a one-way ticket to Kenya when he was 23, Zane Wilemon discovered his life’s calling in a small town outside of Nairobi. Recognizing the deep spirit of UBUNTU, “I am because we are,” Zane co-founded UBUNTU (formerly Create the Change International) with Jeremiah Kuria, serving as Executive Director to the social enterprise incubator which is now the largest employer in a town of 60,000 people.  Zane has been featured on NPR and Huffington Post and co-hosts “Beers Big Ideas,” a weekly podcast featuring conscious businesses and microbreweries. He is an ordained priest in the Episcopal Church and received his undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas and his Masters in Divinity from the Seminary of the Southwest.
