Using spoken word, drama and presentations, young women from Australia, Nigeria, UK and Zambia will share how they are overcoming injustices by advocating to shatter mental health stigma, improve girls’ access to education, end gender-based violence and eradicate gender-specific persecution. Through mentoring and equipping facilitated by Girls’ Brigade, these women are making transformational change locally and globally demonstrating how engaging young women of faith is critical in ensuring the successful implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and gender justice. Join us for an exciting and dynamic conversation!

The team will also be joined by Nelly Banda (Zambia) who is an accountant and she is a trained mentor for adolescent girls and an advocate for girls and women through Girls’ Brigade. Nelly is to ending violence committed against women.
