“Healthy, Wholly” summer camp aims to increase the learning capabilities of youths by tackling any mental health issues they may be experiencing due to some form of childhood trauma via the use of sports and physical activities.

The program is being introduced to the Sophia Special School which is bridging the gap between mainstream and special needs learning. The school primarily functions as a rehabilitative institution that provides for its students to learn vocational, academic and life skills. The students comprise of children who are slow learners, those who have never attended school, as well as those who have performed poorly in secondary schools.

The program is scheduled for a duration of 6 weeks. In the sessions they will be taught about mental health and the link it has to our 7 overall wellbeing. Students will be exposed to a variety of sports/ physical activities such as basketball, karate, dance, archery, football, etc. They will also be able to learn certain skills, and earn certificates for those skills, e.g. First Aid Training, sewing, cake decorating, etc. Students will also have to attend mandatory Social and Emotional Learning programs, which will be held once per week. These sessions will teach them specific traits/ qualities necessary to become successful adults. The overall aim of the 6 weeks training is to improve the lives of each of the youths by giving them a fair chance to succeed.

The Miss World Organisation owns and manages the annual Miss World Finals, a competition that has grown into one of the world’s biggest. Since its launch in 1951, the Miss World Organization has raised more than £250 million for children’s charities. Miss World is franchised in more than 140 countries. Miss World becomes popular among the viewing public, which warrants the continuity of the pageant not only as a pageant itself but more importantly, an institution for humanitarian causes as a result of raising millions of pounds for charities around the globe under the banner of its “Beauty with a Purpose” program.

Guyana has a proven track record for delivering results and performance at the Miss World competition – with as recent as a top 10 placement in 2015 and 2014. It is expected that we will deliver the same results or even better this year with the general help, guidance and support from the Guyanese populace.

The Miss World Guyana organizer focuses on raising money for charities and mirroring the role and spirit of Miss World at a national level. Under new directorship since 2013, Miss World Guyana holds its annual pageant to identify young Guyanese women who exemplify beauty, talent, intelligence and compassion. The organization aims to create and empower role models who will serve as regional ambassadors, role models, charity representatives, enrich the perception of beauty, and enhance a new strength, energy and spirit for the advancement of women, while positively impacting their communities.

Miss World Guyana is not only the most holistic and aspiring job for any young woman but also one of the most prestigious titles to achieve as an accomplishment. The winner of Miss World Guyana represents Guyana with over 130 other countries at the annual Miss World finals. Each year Miss World Guyana entrants and finalists raise money for either chosen charities or projects supported through donations to local charities in need of assistance.

Miss World is the largest and longest running international beauty pageant. Launched in 1951, it has become one of the world’s most watched annual events worldwide with a viewing audience of over 1 billion people. It is the only pageant that has a Beauty with a Purpose competition, which is the name of a special annual award program that singles out and recognizes the Miss World contestant who has shown, through charitable works, to have made a real difference to people in need in her country.

Ms. Ambika Ramraj will be representing Guyana in the Miss World 2018 competition in China, December 8th 2018. Your support will ensure Guyana is well presented as a country so that all Guyanese can be proud.

Honourable Minister Dr. George Norton is also expected to be at the Press Conference.

Your Presence will be most highly appreciated.
