The Mumba Children’s Project has been running the Miss Malaika Pageant annually since 2005; as a platform for the youth both girls and boys to realize their potential be it in music, creative art, public speaking, charitable or philanthropic work.
Contestants of the Miss Malaika Pageant are heavily involved in fundraising for their nominated charities as well as performing the duty of good-will ambassadors for the communities, regions and countries they represent. Miss Malaika Pageant contestants are also actively involved in a variety of education and awareness programmes in rural and remote parts of their native countries.
In addition to enabling the young women who compete to elevate themselves through the opportunities offered by the Pageant, the young women get to travel, meet peers from other parts of the world which offers the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of cultural diversity the needs and challenges of others.
As for the young men, involved with this Miss Malaika Charity Pageant, many have going on to carve out careers for themselves in the music industry.
