This episode's featured guest is Lunga Ndlovu - a father of three children, co-founder of the non-profit organization Ride Abuse and the director of Brave Works Concepts. Lunga has cycled over 4400KMs in South Africa and across several African countries with the purpose of raising funds for gender-based violence awareness. On April 27th 2021, he will be attempting to break a Guinness World Record by cycling non-stop for twenty-four hours.
Our conversation with Lunga is a Road to Redemption that details:
- Ride Abuse; an organization Lunga co-founded with the mission to provide guidance and resources for victims and perpetrators once they step out of an abusive environment.
- His struggle with depression, navigating life with an absent father, experience with drug abuse (overdosing) and a suicide attempt.
- Navigating the stigmas and shame men experience when they share their stories of being victims of abuse.
- How meditation, spirituality and cycling ignited his healing journey.
