According to the Miss World organization, “Beauty With A Purpose sits firmly at the very heart of Miss World. Over the last 48 years, it has changed the lives of disadvantaged communities around the world. The secret lies in the economies of scale. With every crowning of Miss World is the start of a new chapter. A chapter that signals the shift from beauty pageant to global humanitarian programme focusing on the most sick and disadvantaged people in the world.”
