Come 1 July 2017, the nation is set to find out who will become the new Miss Namibia 2017. To make the event unforgettable, Standard Bank recently pledged their support by contributing N$80,000 towards the event.

The Miss Namibia Pageant celebrates beauty with a charitable cause, by crowning one deserving young woman to carry the title of Miss Namibia and the closing date for entries this year is Friday 12 May.

Speaking at the Miss Namibia launch event last week PR and Communications Manager for Standard Bank, Surihe Gaomas-Guchu said that the banking retailer supports the development, empowerment and recognition of women in general.

“The Miss Namibia Pageant is not only about finding the most beautiful and apt ladies in the country, but also plays a vital role as role models and ambassadors for the country,” Gaomas-Guchu said.

“We support the development, empowerment and recognition of women in all sectors of society. By sponsoring the Miss Namibia Pageant and the Namibian Women of Excellence project, Standard Bank is contributing towards raising awareness of the important role women play in our communities,” she added.

Gaomas-Guchu said through their support of the event it goes beyond the beauty pageant as ultimately, their support focuses on women that are contributing to the upliftment of the poor and the needy.
