My name is Chantelle, the heart behind Brave Development. I’m an Occupational Therapist with a passion for people, especially the little ones. Ever since I could remember I’ve always known that I wanted work with children and as the years have progressed I’ve found myself inspired to work with adolescents too, as I believe in investing in the next generation. It has been quite the journey to get to this point; I formally worked in the physical rehabilitation field, the medico-legal field as well as a Learners with Special Needs School. All roads led me here.
I started Brave development in 2019 with the vision of it being a place where misunderstood or misinterpreted children, adolescents and young adults would encounter someone willing to invest in them and bring out the best in them while providing a hope for their future. We also have a non-income generating department where we offer pro bono services to children, adolescents or young adults struggling financially.
