As Miss Ghana @ 60 beckons, it is also imperative to celebrate the brand’s various social interventions by the Miss Ghana Foundation.
The Miss Ghana Foundation is the outreach wing of the Miss Ghana organization that oversees the social intervention and humanitarian responsibilities of the group and equips young women with the necessary skills to be discerning and functional in society.
For many years, the Foundation has carved an impressive niche as that body that generates awareness to various socio-economic problems, collaborates with government institutions and corporate firms in sending relief to various communities across the country.
It has actively been involved in providing meaningful and lasting solutions to most of the social interventions embarked on.
One of the major projects undertaken by the Miss Ghana Foundation, among many others is the Don Bosco Street Child Project; where the Foundation aided in acquiring a 10-acre land and established a hostel where thousands of street children are given social and technical training.
In line with the core objectives of the Foundation, the Miss Ghana Organization has always been choosing personalities who best fit the agenda.
In order to win the bragging rights to be called ‘Miss Ghana’, one must be primed, have leadership and strategic skills, possess the passion to help others and must be ready at all times to confidently represent the nation with pride.
‘Miss Ghana’ is not all about the glitz, ‘glam’, bliss and the many privileges that come with the crown; it comes with an ambassadorial role that involves lots of toil and sweat – in joining other enterprising ladies to bring change to communities.
The role of the Queen is also to serve as a role model who aids in generating support for the under-privileged in societies to get access to quality education, health and good standard of living.
As an Ambassador, the Queen must be in a position to serve as a source of inspiration, a beacon of hope and a voice for girls and young women across the country.
It is imperative to note that the main focus of the Miss Ghana brand has and will always be the various social intervention projects the foundation embarks on.
As the organization marks its 60th anniversary, the focus is to have the ‘Miss Ghana@60’ titleholder; her runners-up and regional queens dedicate a minimum of one year of service full of commitment, diligence, loyalty and passion – in line with extending social intervention programmes across the country.
