Agent 251 | Jason Will | JWRE | Gil Leonard | Buy A Brick | Africa | Charity

The Agent 251 podcast is a Real Estate podcast but Jason insists that we share the stories and inspirational work of people doing good deeds in our community. Meet Gib Leonard from TeamAfrica.com and the Buy A Brick Foundation. For 14 years his faith-based team of recruited volunteers (of everyday people) work for the common goal of partnering with and helping school children and their communities grow and thrive in Zimbabwe. From building schools, water wells, incubating economic sustainability, and feeding school children this boots on the ground and hand up (not hand out) organization has not only changed lives, but has saved lives, and has accomplished things that others have said couldn't be done. The Buy A Brink Foundation and TeamAfrica.com are building communities of future leaders today, so that the people of Zimbabwe have a brighter tomorrow.
