Mr and Miss Mookgophong co-organizer George Khosa has revealed that this year they will be handing over uniforms to the local schools, through their campaign named “Bring a child to school.”
He said they will go to schools as early as next week.
Khosa said their recent pageant was an event to remember.
He told The BEAT that the turnout at the event was very good, with the community of Mookgophong coming out in numbers to support the initiative.
“The purpose of the pageant is to uplift, build and boost self confidence among young people of our community. Our aim is to improve the lives of Mookgophong people.”
He said they will be working hand in hand with LIM 368 Municipality, Social Development, SAPS, Victim Support Center, Sassa, Schools and the community at large to ensure that challenges faced by the community are addressed.
“Our duties will be simple, we will go to the people through door to door campaigns. We will talk to members of the community and check if they have issues that need to be addressed, then refer them to relevant departments.
Mr Mookgophong will deliver their task of community development, alongside Miss Mookgophong and the runners up.
“As the king of Mookgophong youth (Mr Mookgophong), I am willing to improve the economy of Mookgophong. Seeing Mookgophong shine is one of my priorities. For my entire term as Mr Mookgophong, I am hoping to see young people in Mookgophong making it out there and becoming future stars,” said Mr Mookgophong, Phuti Winston Kgopedi.
“Winning the Miss Mookgophong pageants was an unforgettable excitement. I never expected it. I never thought for one day that I would feel a crown on my head, I know Miss Mookgophong comes with responsibility and I am willing to serve right by the community and be the person I promised to be. Expect me in most of charities in our community and I will be continuing with beauty pageants,” said Miss Mookgophong, Betra Mahlodi Malema.
