Since Thecoaches acquired the international franchise under the management of Miss Face of Humanity (MFOH) established and owned in Canada, the media has been agog as MFOH Nigeria is being adjudged a beckon of hope, riding on the crest of the desire of Nigerians for a focused, Educative, and qualitatively defined pageant.
Undoubtedly, the essence of most beauty pageants is to celebrate the totality of the beauty of a woman. This however goes beyond looks to project such qualities as intelligence, confidence, poise, charity, and charm among others.
From Miss Nigeria, which started in 1957 to Silverbird Group’s Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria (MBGN), the Nigerian entertainment sub-sector has in recent times seen a rise in the introduction of beauty pageants in various forms and shades.
Noteworthy is the fact that despite ugly tales, perhaps due to the sexy dress patterns of contestants and the daring manner in which they strut the runway; new developments have been trailing these pageants.
Most remarkable are those that primarily focus on harnessing the potentials of women, while also exploring their capacity to lead an army of achievers in addressing some of the challenges bedeviling Nigerian society through advocacy, outreach, and volunteerism.
This is where Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria comes in. Within a few months of crowning Rita Chika Ezenwa the Ambassador for 2022/2023 and representative to Miss Face of Humanity International which will hold later this year, MFOH Nigeria has been visible with sustainable impacts on communities, the media, and society at large, even up to making a global impact.
As a global showcase for female change-makers who believe in the power of Humanity to change MFOH believes every woman has a voice and a light to create change, and there is no better time to DARE and to be heard than RIGHT NOW.
In recognition of this, Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria has embarked on a lot of campaigns and selfless service to humanity through high-profile advocacy engagements on developmental issues including human rights, peace, and development, social inclusion, etc.
Shortly after being crowned Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria 2023, Amb Rita Chika Ezenwa granted The World Satellite Magazine an interview where she among other things expressed her excitement about being MFOH Nigeria.
According to her, MFOH’s vision aligns with her goals and purposes as a passionate humanitarian who loves giving back to society.
“The MFOH platform will enable me to become a better version of myself and fight more for social inclusion for kids living with disabilities, special needs, women and youth empowerment, peace, and sustainable development.
“Wearing the MFOH crown, I see myself as a symbol of hope to the child on the street who is scared and confused, the families that do not have a roof over their heads, and the boys and girls that have been raped and molested”, Amb. Rita had emphasized.
Worried over the massive infringement on human rights, especially by the wave of insurgency, perpetrating havoc and willful displacement of communities that have infringed on peace and cultural integration, MFOH Nigeria’s Rita Ezenwa was a guest at the 2nd UN, Government of Nigeria, and Partners Dialogue on Human Rights Priorities organized by the National Human Rights Commission and the United Nations Nigeria.
As a follow-up, MFOH Nigeria further engaged the Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Commission and its principal staff in a meeting on the need to push a legislative framework for the protection of the rights of autistic kids and the disabled in general.
Similarly, as Nigeria joined other Nations of the world to celebrate the 2022 International Human Rights Day on December 10, 2022, the MFOH Nigeria Ambassador addressed journalists as a special guest of honour at a Media Round Table organized by the prominent civil rights advocacy group; the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) in Abuja.
Reflecting on the theme of the Media Round Table: World’s Human Rights Day Commemoration: – Reflection on the Situation of the IDPs in FCT, MFOH Nigeria reminded the people of the world, including Nigeria of the complementarities between peace and human rights in advancing humanity as a whole
Before International Human Rights Day, MFOH Nigeria, who was a special guest of honour at the closing ceremony of the 2nd extraordinary summit of the Youth Model African Union in Abuja, commended the commitment of the African Union in simulating youths across the 55-member states of the Africa Union in the diplomatic process and activities of the African Union.
Again, in a bid to help assuage the lamentations at 2022 Christmas, Amb. Rita, who is also the Founder and Executive Director of the prominent humanitarian and advocacy organization; the Nery Developmental Initiatives (NDI) urged Nigerians to remember the poor, weak, and disadvantaged as our legacy is measured by our love for humanity.
As a testament to her commitment to advancing the course of humanity, the MFOH Nigeria on Friday, December 24, 2022, took to the streets and the slum areas of Abuja to share some valuables with the disadvantaged, with special emphasis on the aged.
Perhaps, the high point of MFOH Nigeria’s engagements to contribute to the advancement of humanity through campaigns and outreaches so far was the official working visit to the United Nations House in Nigeria.
This working visit was part of MFOH Nigeria’s effort in seeking a veritable platform to campaign for world peace, respect for human rights, and diplomacy across the world.
More so, to partner and support developmental issues that advance and protect humanity as a whole as well as fast track sustainable projects and outreaches for the rural communities in Abuja.
It would be apt to mention that through a global network of partners and national directors, MFOH Nigeria has planned out some activities to select, train, and develop robust engagements that will help in providing avenues for public enlightenment, research, and dialogue.
The planned free medical outreach to be held at the Jabi village community on February 11, 2023, gives credence to the zeal of the leading brand to continue to take proactive steps to implement its goal of providing platforms and countless opportunities.
Additionally, plans are on the ground to hold what can best be described as the most sustainable social inclusion campaign in recent times tagged the “Disability Inclusion Project” intended to galvanize a large army of achievers and stakeholders.
Given the Organisation’s passion and determination, coupled with other lined-up activities and engagements of Miss Face of Humanity Nigeria so far, experts do not have any doubt that the Brand will be a big boost to improving the functionality and dynamism in the entertainment sub-sector of Nigeria.
