The BRAVE Movement

To realize our vision of educational transformation in Sierra Leone, we must work through the challenge of disrupting the norms that have been ingrained, and are the invisible traps that hold the people back. As rich and beautiful as Sierra Leonean culture is, many customs of Sierra Leone discourage risk taking, boldness, and individual voice. Fears, challenges, and mistakes are swept under the rug, and honest expression, vulnerability, and asking for help can often be misinterpreted as signs of weakness. Now, more than ever, do we need to overcome this, as it’s an essential ingredient for helping our children heal from the personal loss and trauma of living through the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak. Together with our community, Shine On is forging a new Brave path, shattering this ceiling of preconceived notions.

Shine On Sierra Leone and David & Goliath have joined forces to create “Today, I’m Brave” – A movement that inspires people all over the world to live the Brave lifestyle of overcoming fears, creating and following a path, and following one’s dreams.

Being brave is about being true to yourself. Every single day. It’s about being willing to take risks and hold yourself accountable. It’s about arming yourself with intelligence and creativity and then going after those challenges that would have otherwise held you back.

 

– David & Goliath

Today, I will lead by example.
Help those who need it, and inspire others to do the same.

Today, I will be the first to raise my hand,
to ask the questions that will find the answers.

Today, I will learn something new.
I will open my mind from the moment I open my eyes.

Today, I will be the best me.
I will take on fear and it will disappear.

Today, I will believe in myself,
and tomorrow, I will be anything I want to be.
