BraveHeart Initiative BHI
‘We’ are a brave and passionate group of young people. BHI is a youth-focused organization in Nigeria dedicated to developing and empowering young people between the ages of 10 and 25 years through information and skills training to make informed choices, grow into self-actualized adults capable of contributing towards a better society. In October 2009, it became registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission.
We engage young people to take action on issues that they are passionate about. We believe in conceptualizing and implementing community-based projects that challenge stereotypes, forge sustainable partnerships and promote the uninhibited expression of young people. BHI works mainly in Akoko Edo Local Government Area of Edo State, Nigeria and also works with youth-focused organisations along with partnerships at local, national, regional and international levels
As a result of BHI outreach activities, more young people have become assertive and proactive on issues of Gender Based Violence especially rape and sexual harassment.
