The pageant is not solely focusing on the beauty of the queens. It’s also an opportunity for local communities in Limpopo to benefit in various ways. The co-founder of Miss Heritage Global Ronald Tisauke expressed that it hopes this pageant will help create jobs by engaging with different communities from different backgrounds to participate in the event.

“We are not just trying to be internationally recognised, but the point of this pageant is to also help marginalised communities and reshape their destiny if possible. So, a part of it is to also try to identify the gaps within societies and help where we can through the pageant,” he said.
