Bodacious Girls

The Bodacious Girls is an annual Gala which celebrates the young ladies of the NiNa Programme and serve as the largest fund raiser for the programme.


Held at the historic Castle Kilarney, the Gala has continued to not only raise the profile of the NiNa Programme, it also builds the confidence of the young ladies as they are able to transform into Bold and Audacious young women for the event.
