Gold sponsorship for 2014 Miss Namibia Pageant
“Standard Bank supports 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 Namibian communities,” said Gaomas-Guchu. “It also stresses that the Bank’s support towards the Miss Namibia Pageant goes beyond the beauty pageant. Ultimately, our support focuses on women that are contributing to the upliftment of the poor and the needy,” she highlighted.
During her reign in 2014 Miss Namibia will work closely with the charity organisations of this year’s Women of Excellence winners. Last year Standard Bank Namibia rewarded Women of Excellence, Michelle McLean of the Michelle McLean Children Trust and Patricia Sola of the Hope Initiative Project with a total of N$35 000-00 each. The other three finalists: Esme Coetzee of the ‘Step out of Poverty through Encouragement, Education and Support’ (S.P.E.S.) charity; Regina Kondombolo of the Hephata Project and Lize-Leandra Ann Ehlers of Uyelele each received N$10 000-00. “We are so thrilled that Standard Bank has confirmed their commitment towards the 2014 Miss Namibia Pageant. Thank you so much. It is most appreciated,” said Conny Maritz, National Director of the Miss Namibia Pageant.
