MISS MALAIKA GHANA DELEGATES DONATE 10K AND BOOKS TO ADUMASA READING PROJECT

Once every year, Miss Malaika Ghana encourages it’s delegates to embark on charity and cultural tasks because organizers believe that two of the core attributes of a good queen hover around understanding her roots and having a kind and charitable heart.

The 16 delegates for Miss Malaika Ghana 2016 were asked to pick a mentor for their charity and cultural task and what better mentor to pick than a woman with a good heart, style and a rich cultural legacy, Oheneyere Gifty Anti.

With her royal home not too far from the capital city Accra, the delegates decided to pay a visit to Adumasa, where her husband, the celebrated Nana Ansa Kwaw is King. The motive, aside acquainting themselves with the rich cultural heritage of the area, was also to raise funds for a project that will be beneficial to the community, Adumasa, a beautiful small town located up the hill from Akosombo in the Eastern region.

As tradition would have it, they first paid a courtesy call to the chiefs, queen mothers and elders of Adumasa.

Right after the courtesy call, delegates who had spent weeks raising funds for Oheneyere Gifty Anti’s project in Adumasa called the AWO DANSO READING PROJECT, donated 10,000 cedis cash, stationery and books to the reading project.

After the donation, the entire township gathered at a well-organized durbar to outdoor the ladies to the people of Adumasa, with chiefs and queens and natives dressed in colourful traditional outfits.
The delegates danced, sang and exhibited the rich culture of their various regions to the people of Adumasa. All sixteen ladies individually brought gifts from their regions and presented them to Oheneyere. It was the first time beauty queens had spent time and donated to the people of Adumasa and they were more than appreciative. Oheneyere Gifty Anti in expressing her gratitude encouraged each and every delegate to remember that it is a competition but it is important to be united as women.
