Twenty-eight-year-old Mpho Nyangintsimbi, born and raised in Hammanskraal has been named of the finalists for Miss Bachelorette South Africa 2020. The pageant is a women empowerment project that is aimed at recognizing and empowering mature, unmarried women between the ages of 25 and 50 to serve as role models.
Mpho runs quite a few projects all aimed at empowering and giving back to the community. She is the founder of Nyangis foundation, an NPO where they donate sanitary towels and school uniforms to less privileged learners and also runs a support group for young mothers called #babymamarise to help them become emotionally and financially independent.
” I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, I understand and know how it feels to lack, so I couldn’t stand seeing a child going to school barefooted. So I decided that with the little that I have I can also lend a hand and make an impact“, she said.
Mpho also runs other programs such as #takeagirlchildbacktoschool, where they help
learners who dropped out of school because of teenage pregnancy register
back to school and #adoptanaddict where they visit those who are addicted to Nyaope, donate food parcels and toiletries and try to get them to rehabilitation centres.
” I entered Miss Bachelorette South Africa to be the change in people’s
lives especially women. I want to empower and redefine empowerment. I
wanted to remind women of who they are and the power they possess. People are able to assist by donations, sponsorship and also identifying the needy so we can
reach out to them “
