The historic Head To Head Challenge ended on a historical moment when representative Quiin ABENAKYO from Uganda secured a place in the top 30 for Miss World 2018.
This is a monumental moment for Uganda as they have secured a place in the top 30 for the first time in Miss World history.

The reigning queen noted that Uganda’s Beauty with a Purpose project is fighting teenage pregnancies.
“1 in 4 adolescent girls ages 14 to 19 either have a child or pregnant. This has led to school dropouts, health complications like fistula, some girls are banished from home leaving them helpless.”
Quiin ABENAKYO further expressed: “I believe they all have dreams and goals to achieve. My objective is to put into action my Beauty with a Purpose project using the opportunity given to me by the Miss Uganda foundation and Miss World organisation to achievably bring to the fore front of the world stage causes that promote the sanity of human life especially the girl child.”
Everyone present were inspired by this moment to see Uganda’s Beauty with a Purpose project recognised, supporting to equip and skill the girl child so that they can reach their full potential, through the keep the girl child in school campaign.
