Komera. Be Brave. is a two-part resource available in both book and curriculum format. It shares the story of a young refugee boy, Aleze, who flees to Burundi from his home in the Democratic Republic of Congo and is later resettled in the United States. Through this story, students will come to understand some of the factors that contribute to the Congolese wars and empathize with individuals whose lives and education are disrupted by war. Students will make connections between the importance of community in Azele’s and other refugees’ lives, and their own experience of community and belonging, particularly during challenging times.
