MISS ADANMA QUEEN 2018/19 Onyinyechi Faith Awanwike
The Miss Adanma Pageant International (MAP) is the brainchild of its Creative Director/Producer Ms Ruffina Adimora. MAP is a non bikini Cultural Beauty Pageant with a Purpose. It exists to promote specifically Igbo and more generally African heritage and Culture, using traditional fashion, dance, music, folk tale, language, food and song to educate and entertain.
MAP is also being used to fulfill Ms Ruffina's passion for gender equality in Africa. It specifically highlights the needs and sometimes dire circumstances of many of the women and girls in Nigeria.
Ms. Ruffina considers that it is vital not just to meet these needs, but also to put in place strategies that empower the victims and help them build their own resilience.
MAP International is using the unique beauty of the African Woman to highlight the exploitation of women and to inspire them towards alternative pathways.
Profits from the Pageants are used to support Widows, Orphans and the physically challenged.
The Pageant has been an annual event in the United Kingdom and in Nigeria.
In the Summer of 2020 it is planned to expand the Pageant to the United States of America.
Any future developments will be broadcast on radio, TV and via social media.
