Each Thursday we hear about an individual who’s decided to work to make the world a better place.

Rich Johnson is one of the co-founders of Spark Ventures. One summer night in 2006, Rich and two of his closest friends went out to a movie. Afterwards they had a conversation about life-changing moments. By the end of the evening, they decided to take a trip to Africa and do a volunteer project.

Johnson tells Jerome how he ended up in Zambia.
