Changing the world, one cause at a time, is the mission of Miss Humanity International, a pageant, headquartered in Barbados, with the sole objective of promoting and raising awareness about humanitarian causes worldwide.
“The pageant is open to young ladies ages 18 to 28, who have a strong passion for community and humanitarian service,” chief executive officer and founder of the franchise, Stephanie Chase, told Bajan Vibes ahead of a major international pageant being hosted here for ten days – from August 17.
“The Miss Humanity International Pageant is by far the most extensive pageantry effort in promoting the host nation’s tourism industry. Hosting it in Barbados enables the country to reveal to the world its many beautiful facets, from the bustling cities, the idyllic towns to the sun-kissed beaches. With the country’s unique melting pot of cultures, memories of Barbados would linger the longest in the contestants’ minds.
“The contest also serves as a platform to educate and promote tourism and cultural exchange among the participating beauty queens. The Miss Humanity International is the proverbial vehicle capturing the essence of the host country and its way of life through the eyes of these beauties,” Chase added.
She revealed that 12 young women, drawn from as far as Morocco, Australia, New Zealand, and right here at home Barbados, would vie in a number of categories, including Most Outstanding Humanitarian Project, Beauty On A Mission and Humanitarian Queens Of The Continents.
