Organised by YouthHubAfrica, the Determined, Aspire, Reimagine and Express (DARE) Conference is a two-day gathering that seeks to bring together over 500 young Africans to discuss issues tied to sexual and gender-based violence against women and girls in Africa.
Under the theme, ‘Expanding Margins’, participants will discuss the practical experience of other youth speakers who will share personal life experiences, success stories as well as their vision regarding an end to violence against women and girls.
The DARE Conference will have speakers share their vision regarding the future of Nigeria, focusing on conflict prevention and civic engagement, as well as on employment and entrepreneurship with focus on youths.
The aim of the conference is to spark off relevant conversation among young Nigerians on taking responsibility to secure their future.
The forum will also be an avenue to challenge young Nigerians on the need to be active citizenship, speak out and get involved in nation-building.
