A lifetime of designing programs for at-risk populations led Conrad to the war-devastated region of northern Uganda in 2006. When challenged by the trauma and reintegration problems that former child soldiers and other abductees were experiencing upon their return home, Conrad developed the concept of ChildVoice, a place of healing and restoration for those left behind.
As ChildVoice’s CEO and President, Conrad’s work today focuses on strengthening programs at the Lukome Center and in the refugee settlements of northern Uganda while opening up new programs in Nigeria and other conflict regions around the world.
An avid cyclist, Conrad has ridden nine times across the state of Iowa -- more than 4,500 miles -- to promote ChildVoice and its work with war-affected children. When not working or riding, Conrad and his wife, Kathy, raise Highland cattle and quarter horses on their farm in New Hampshire.
Kristin is the Director of Programs at ChildVoice. After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, she worked at the Lukome Center in Uganda for four years. There she specialized in the areas of health and nutrition education, as well as establishing income-generating projects within the local community. While working alongside her colleagues and community in Uganda, her passion for social justice and humanitarian development grew as she saw the transformation of lives firsthand. She continues to travel to East Africa with ChildVoice, working with children whose lives have been shattered by war.
