Mrs Angelique Wright was crowned as Mrs KwaZulu Natal 2013 this past weekend at the La Montagne Pumpkin Theatre in Ballito.
Angelique was positively radiant as she competed against ladies from other regions of KZN, for this provincial representative philanthropic title. This is the provincial round of the Mrs Mzantsi Africa Role Model title, which is a national pageant that takes place annually in Cape Town. The charity beneficiary of the pageant is the Rolemodels Foundation’s Imfundo Project. Rolemodels Foundation (084-422NPO) is a charitable association not for gain, registered under current legislation as prescribed by the non profit organisation’s act, Act 7 of 1997, with the Department of Social Development. The word ‘Imfundo’ is derived from the Nguni language and directly translated means ‘the acquisition of knowledge & education.
This project is aimed at the building of pre-schools, after-care school homework and life skills centres, as well as establishing food gardens. The foundation years of a youngster’s life sets the trend for their future outlook. We cannot reverse the effects of past generation’s actions; but we can be pro-active in having a positive impact on the next generation, by intervening and creating an alternative to what they are currently experiencing.
