World Outside My Shoes, Spokane, Washington, U.S.A.
World Outside My Shoes came into existence as a result of continuing requests for Carl Wilkens to speak at schools, community events, educator workshops, and other professional groups across the country about his experiences in Rwanda during the genocide. From these experiences he is able to move into sharing life principles that impact relationships and opportunities that we encounter every day. In January 2008 Carl left his job working with high school students for the past 11 years in order to respond full time to these invitations. He soon saw the need to establish a structure that could both facilitate these speaking events while also providing a channel for support from those who share the vision of World Outside My Shoes.
