The Miss Ghana Foundation is a registered charity arm of the Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant.
Over the years, past Miss Ghana queens have taken up different social projects that help transform and positively impact lives of the most vulnerable or less privileged in society.
Management has realized that though such projects are laudable, their sustainability is low or non-existent. In the light of this observation, management initiated the concept of having all newly crowned Miss Ghana Queens, their runner ups and regional queens (finalists) work under the Miss Ghana Foundation umbrella so as to ensue sustainability of our charity projects in each of the ten region of Ghana and beyond.
Postively impacting lives.
- Impacting lives of less privileged in society.
- Creating social entrepreneurs.
- Training and development of our youth
The Key areas the charity focuses on are :
Health: Starting 2013, the foundation has identified infant/maternal mortality as a major challenge. Current Miss Ghana, Naa Okailey Shooter and subsequent queens, will work on various projects to help reduce the alarming rates in our rural communities across Ghana to help the nation attain the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 4 and 5 by 2015.
Environment: The 1st runner up will undertake a lot of afforestation projects and sanitary campaigns.
Education: The 2nd runner up will focus on creating awareness and raising funds to provide scholarships to support the formal education of a number of orphans. The foundation is working on rescuing children as young as ten in extreme child labor cases, to rehouse them in orphanages and support them through school.
Aged: This February, Miss Ghana and her runners up will spend St. Valentine’s Day at the Leila witch camp in the northern region to provide them with medical care, food and cloths and also provide them with potable water by constructing a borehole.
Streetism: Working to eradicate child hawkers from the street in our big cities.
Social Entrepreneurship: Hundreds of young women are empowered across Ghana each year with soft skills and training to enable them carry out marketing and project development for foundation and future chosen careers.
