    Pushing Forward with GirlForward

    Pushing Forward with GirlForward

    GirlForward is an Austin based charity with Chicago roots dedicated to helping refugee girls ages 14 to 21 adapt smoothly and safely into America. It isn't being a refugee of any kinds, but unfortunately girls are especially venerable to violence, isolation, and a lack of education during times of civil unrest. GirlForward's mission is to help these young girls feel safe and at home, even in a different country.



    In this episode of Everyday Superhumans Charlie and Kyle chat with Karnika Iyenga, the executive director of GirlForward, about the many challenges refugee girls face and how GirlForward is helping them overcome them.

    Keeping Austin Wild with Austin Wildlife Rescue

    Keeping Austin Wild with Austin Wildlife Rescue

    Austin Wildlife Rescue has been helping keep Austin wild since 1977. Austin Wildlife Rescue rehabilitates and releases orphaned, sick, and injured wild animals and educates the public to coexist with wildlife.

    In this episode of Everyday Superhumans Charlie and Kyle chat with the Hayley Hudnall, Executive Director of Austin Wildlife Rescue, about the nearly 8,000 animals AWR took in during 2019 as well as common misconceptions about wild animals and how you can help them. We often forget that the animals came before the neighborhoods and we are infringing on their territory. AWR helps us live together in harmony with education about protection and rehabilitation for the animals.
