The $1500 (about Shs5.4 million) support will help Tyra Abok to travel to Dubai to represent Uganda in the Little Miss United World Beauty Pageant.
According to Ruparelia Foundation’s Nuwasasira Isabella, Tyra Abok has an exceptional talent that deserves to be supported.
“It will be a good opportunity for the Foundation to help her put Uganda on the map by supporting her Miss World fashion ventures as she goes to Dubai to represent Uganda in the Little Miss United World. It should be noted this would be a unique venture for the Ruparelia foundation and the first one of its kind,” said Isabella.
She added, “Her being an advocate of children’s rights and other challenges children faces, her ideologies are well aligned with the Ruparelia Foundation’s objectives and its something the foundation can put its weight on and support.”
