The Idea

:

As goodwill ambassador and the reigning Miss Africa USA, my platform is to raise awareness and funds to Fight Against Hunger in the Horn of Africa, particularly in Somalia.
The food crisis is real with over 13.3 million people in need of immediate assistance. Something must be done.

The Specifics

1. To raise awareness:
a. Wear and distribute orange (color of hunger awareness) ribbons, in the communities, at events and interviews to promote the cause.
b. Organize networking events to create awareness. Events will be free to the public and attendees will learn about ways to support the cause and the plan of action.
2. To raise funds:
a. Fundraiser:
i. Create online fundraising
ii. Send out donation letters
iii. Organize a fundraiser banquet.
3. I will finalize this project with a trip to the Horn of Africa where the funds will be used to feed Somali refugees in Kenya and Ethiopia.

I feel lie the trip to the Horn of Africa might be a waste of resources that could go toward feeding many...perhaps I am wrong, but it seems like the resources might be better used in another way

Amelia, may I disagree with you. While I understand your view about reallocating resources, there is nothing greater than devoting both resources and time to meet the needs of our brothers and sisters in Somalia. Going to Somalia and experiencing what they are going through while providing food and shelter speaks volume. With hands-on experience, Miss Africa USA will also be better informed on this crisis to cone up with nore innovative stratergies to continue proving assistance.

I agree with you Linda, the children in Somalia need every help they can get. Saving one life is far more than sitting back and doing nothing. These children need food and shelter, they are stock in refugee camps in neighboring Kenya and Ethiopia. With enough funds, Ghyslaine can help feed children in these refugee camps as well. We love you Ghyslaine, please stay on top and the world will see you in action.

You are really a dream come true for those millions of hungry people, who ask for nothing but a drop of water to quench their tirst, and a spoonful of rice to settle their hunger.
May the Lord almighty sprinkle his blessings on you and your team.
