Miss World Africa 2018 gets Government Backing


Miss World Africa 2018, Quiin Abenakyo has received a pledge of support from The Rt Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, Speaker of Parliament for the Republic of Uganda for her Beauty With A Purpose campaign. ‘Keep the Child in School’ campaign aims to empower young girls by keeping them in school and preventing teenage pregnancies

In a news report by SoftPower News, Kadaga said: “I met Miss World Africa when she paid a courtesy call on me at parliament. We discussed a wide range of issues and I commit to support Abenakyo in order for her plans to succeed as Miss Uganda and Miss Africa.

“I believe that this is the time for Abenakyo to implement her plans, visit schools and other learning institutions in order to give moral support to students and encourage them to study.”

In Uganda 1 in 4 adolescent girls aged 14 to 19 either have a child or are pregnant. This has led to school dropouts, health complications like fistula and some girls are banished from home leaving them helpless.

At the Miss World Final in China, Abenakyo spoke with passion about her Beauty With A Purpose project: “I believe they all have dreams and goals to achieve. My objective is to put into action my Beauty With A Purpose project using the opportunity given to me by the Miss Uganda foundation and Miss World organisation to bring to the forefront of the world stage causes that promote the sanity of human life especially the girl child."
