Our premier girls empowerment event is back! Girls First “Dream Dare Do!” encapsulates the essence of our initiative: encouraging girls to dream big, dare to step out of their comfort zones, and take tangible steps toward achieving their goals.

The “Ignite the Dream” motivational segment aims to inspire girls to recognise their passions, set goals, and cultivate the confidence and resilience to conquer hurdles. Through creating a supportive and inclusive atmosphere, this session encourages girls to embrace their individuality, honour their strengths, and view challenges as avenues for growth.
