16th edition of Miss Africa Ireland to hold on November 14 in Dublin
The 15th year anniversary and the 16th edition of the Miss Africa Ireland Beauty and Fashion Show will take place on Saturday, November 14th 2015, From 6.30pm at the Ball Room of the Gresham Hotel, 23, Upper O’Connell Street, Dublin 1
The beauty pageant which promotes African heritage and bridges the cultural gap between Diaspora Africans and Irish will see the incumbent queen, Miss Franscescah Heii, a student from Botswana, relinquish the crown to another African girl.
The winner will be the African Cultural/Beauty Ambassador and will be involved in promoting integration and multiculturalism.
This is a beauty pageant with a difference as contestants wear traditional African costumes that represent different African Countries and they also educate the audience about their countries of origin.
Since the pageant’s inaugural in the year 2000, the organisers have maintained their commitment to promoting African beauty and culture and encourage multiculturalism among the Irish and African immigrants in the Republic of Ireland with little or no funding.
Most African ambassadors to Ireland and top government dignitaries attend the event annually. The event also has the backing of the African Embassies in Ireland.
The organisation is non-profit and targets the promotion of a multicultural Ireland and supports the youths and charities targeting African issues each year.
The organisers would like to use this opportunity to appeal to individuals, companies or organisations to support this event and join in the promotion of a multicultural Ireland.
