Father Philip Gbao: Love of education and the poor
Father Philip Gbao is a Salesian Catholic Priest who works with the poor and children in West Africa. At one time he was the principal of a school in Uganda. As a young student he escaped the civil wars in Sierra Leone and now works to empower young women, to train teens in practical skills that will earn them a living wage, and to encourages his students to change behaviors that will make their country cleaner and healthier. He was in the United States to raise money for several young women and men who were completing their college education. We spoke at the Catholic Worker's Maryhouse library -- in the Bowery district of NYC.
