Ruparelia Foundation has extended a financial aid to 11-year-old Tyra Abok, the reigning Mini Little Miss Africa.
The $1500 (about Shs5.4 million) support will help Tyra Abok, who is also the Little Children Ambassador, 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.”
Tyra Abok is passionate about children’s rights, a cause she’s an advocate for. She often uses her social platforms to voice her thoughts on child abuse and other challenges children face.
She’s a promising young talent who has made great strides in the fashion industry by bagging a couple of awards.
The Ruparelia Foundation was founded in 2012 by Dr. Sudhir & Mrs. Jyotsna Ruparelia and runs its programs under the catchphrase theme: “Enriching Lives Together”.
For the past ten years, the Foundation has worked together with several stakeholders to champion positive change in different communities across the country to improve livelihoods in Uganda.
To date, more than 700 charitable causes have been funded by the charity.
