Stories from the road of adventure, resilience, and impact.
BRAVE was founded by a group of ten year old girls from one of the most dangerous communities in Africa who experienced gang violence, poverty, sexual assault, lack of opportunities, and entrenched gender inequality every day. Unable to participate in a running program after school, they decided to create their own safe space, then start exploring their country.
Today, BRAVE girls travel thousands of kilometers each year to document girls’ stories, seek adventure, and advocate for solutions to the same challenges they face, including lack of sanitation, poor reproductive health care, HIV-AIDS, sexual violence, and teen pregnancy. BRAVE girls speak out for girls who don’t have a voice. They also celebrate girls and women who are making a positive difference in their lives and in their communities – who are explorers, athletes, activists, and adventurers – sharing their stories to inspire other girls.
