Finalists of the 2013 Miss Ghana pageant, together with Hiplife artiste turned Pastor Lord Kenya, and the Lesedi Foundation have held a day’s mentoring and personality development session with inmates of the Accra Borstal Institute.
The Lesedi Foundation is a non-profit organization set up to contribute to the positive transformation of the lives of society’s vulnerable and marginalized.
A beautiful sight to behold, the finalists took the inmates through one on one counselling sessions, sharing personal and interrelated life changing stories with them.
For most of the finalists, it was a first time experience interacting with the inmates but the queens keenly listened to each individual and offered some advice whilst answering a broad spectrum of questions.
The ladies have embarked on similar projects under the umbrella of the Miss Ghana Foundation. The latter is an innovation initiated by the local franchise holders of the pageant to ensure sustainability of all charity work commenced by any of the queens in a given year.
All newly crowned queens, their runner-ups and regional queens have the opportunity to volunteer on social projects under the Foundation.
Areas covered by the Foundation include but not limited to Children, the Aged, Education/Mentorship, Infant Maternal Mortality and the Environment.
The Miss Ghana 2013 finals will be held at the Banquet Hall next week Saturday July 20.
