Event description

Description

Okwu ID is a UK based platform by and for young Igbo people. The purpose of the platform is to connect with eachother, discuss issues that affect our community and share our culture.

On the 6th of April we will be hosting our second live YI forum. The event will feature a panel and audience discussion. It will also include: educational lectures, games, challenges and of course food.

We hope the event will give people an opportunity to learn about Igbo culture, as well as connect and have fun with other young Igbo people.

This event is for people 17 - 30 of Igbo descent and those of African descent who have an interest in Igbo culture.

In 2019 is paying a bride price realistic, are men willing to pay and do women feel objectified by the practice?
