Despite these set-backs there are many Kenyan women making massive strides in their different spheres of influence.
Miss World, one of the oldest pageants of our time, seeks to celebrate the woman was founded in 1951 on the principle of charity and giving back to the society, it brings nations of the world together, promoting unity and togetherness with 120 countries represented. In addition it plays a role in raising awareness about challenges facing the world such as poverty, disease & conflict while promoting action for peace, love and togetherness.
This pageant has helped put Kenya as a whole on the world map and has helped groom our very own people to meet national standards in these competitions.
