According to Anuscha Beukes, founder of Glamorous Models Academy that’s hosting the event, they want to empower girls through the pageant and the academy.
“The aim is to give girls a platform for their voices and opinions to be heard,” she says. “Pageants also boost girls’ confidence and makes them stronger.”
The academy has been involved in various pageants and one of their models, Rebecca Kakonda, recently travelled to South Africa to take part in an international beauty pageant.
“We target girls between 5 and 14 years to develop their mind-set. At the academy we not only motivate girls to do modelling, but to have fun while doing it,” Anuscha says.
Girls are also taught how to speak at public events and the academy tries to instil confidence.
The academy is also involved in a programme to empower less fortunate girls and to help them build their self-esteem. According to Anuscha, she personally wants to play an important role in building these children and help them shape their future.
Saturday’s competition starts at 15:00, with special performances by the Morango Crew and Carlito.
