Miss Tourism Pageants Donate To MMCI

LUSAKA, May 14 - The Miss Tourism World Zambia Pageants have donated educational materials to the Maureen Mwanawasa Community Initiative (MMCI) worth about K20 million.

First Lady Maureen Mwanawasa, when she received the donation from this year's Miss Tourism World Zambia pageants at State House yesterday, said tourism was an important venture which was currently contributing to the country's economy. She urged the private sector to find ways of promoting the sector.

She said the initiative taken by the pageants should be emulated by other people to improve educational standards.

Mrs Mwanawasa said the donation would benefit the under-privileged in the country.

And speaking at the same function, chairman of the organising committee for Miss Tourism World Zambia Pageant, Tim walker said the pageants wanted to make a difference by contributing to the needy.

Mr walker said the organisers and participants had created a platform for the promotion of Zambian tourism. They would also act to preserve the natural environment and other places of natural beauty.

He said the challenge for Zambia was to build infrastructure, raise standards of service delivery and market the country as a tourism destination.

From 12 contestants, the Miss Tourism World Zambia Pageant winner would be announced on July 30 at Lusaka's Hotel Intercontinental Hotel.
