Maiveen Boehme, a victim of bullying herself, launched this non-profit company after her daughters were also severely subjected to bullying. While searching for ways to help her daughters she identified the need for a more comprehensive programme to address this widespread problem.
Through her research, Maiveen also learned about bullying in other settings such as in the workplace, within a family dynamic and even at old ages homes, none of which had significant remedial options available.
Maiveen experienced the effects of bullying as part of the support system of victims, and realised that there are multiple role players in bullying. The focus of Project Brave Heart therefore extends to all parties involved, and most importantly also to the bully to provide them with the love, care and assistance that they need.
