Miss Africa Netherlands

As part of the activities commemorating the 2011 World AIDS Day, Miss Africa Netherlands is pleased to announce the 2011 Miss Africa Netherlands Scholarship Pageant event. This event is scheduled to take place on the 3rd of December at the Atlas Party Center, Amsterdam (Buikslotemeerplein 7). This event, the first of its kind in the Netherlands is breaking new ground here.
Mindful of the fact that the African woman plays a key role in educating their children, her contribution to the advancement of the continent cannot be overly emphasized and should never be underestimated. Through this Scholarship Pageant, Miss Africa Netherlands remains highly committed to advancing this cause. 
Miss Africa Netherlands prides itself in empowering young African women in the Netherlands to become role models and to create a positive impact in their communities. 
These Queens would become ambassadors for Africa and have their names marked on the sands of time.
This unique opportunity will focus on promoting the educational as well as professional careers of many young, enchanting, dynamic and enthusiastic African women. The community based approach will go a long way towards developing and enhancing the whole African mind, body and spirit, laying a strong foundation for the leaders of tomorrow. 
Other related social issues to be addressed, include but are not limited to: breast ironing, female genital mutilation, women and child trafficking, to name a few. 
Miss Africa Netherlands takes pride in the fight towards

  • Increased access to Health care and education,
  • Increased access to Education,
  • Empowerment of women,
  • Advocacy for Women and Children’s rights, 
  • Supporting Women’s Initiatives.

Africa, has clearly come a long way and still has huge potential for growth and development. Through Miss Africa Netherlands, we look forward to impacting the continent positively and leaving behind an enduring and praiseworthy legacy. They'll very much like to be associated with like-minded individuals or organizations as they advance this honorable, humane and just cause.
