Permit me introduce myself: I am Anthonia Nkem Emegha, Miss Africa Netherlands 2011-2012 (First edition). My reign as Miss Africa Netherlands just ended last December, and as a matter of fact that, all reigning Queens become pageant coordinators for the next edition of the pageant. As such, I am currently the Pageant coordinator for the second edition of Miss Africa Netherlands (Miss Africa Netherlands 3013-2014)
As you may have noticed, we have recently launched the second edition of the Miss Africa Netherlands Pageant and registrations are currently going on. It is our objective to have contestants this year from all African countries of which only one (1) contestant from each country would go to the final of the event scheduled for December 2013 in Amsterdam.
As part of the preparation for this great event, we are seeking sponsorship/partnership to assist in making this event a success and give it the grandeur it deserves.
As a matter of fact, the pageant is devoted to the positive growth of the African woman of which Stichting Miss Africa Netherlands stresses the importance of Modesty, Education, Communication, poise and social development skills. This I stand to testify.
Our Pride in organizing this pageant is designed to inspire leadership qualities, promote commitment to community, encourage academic excellence, and reinforce high ethical standards and above all, to empower the girl child. In addition to its fostering role in positive youth development, Miss Africa Netherlands also encourages its young winners to become active participants in effective charitable and community events and embracing the spirit of “giving back” to their local communities (this is reflected in our recent rules and regulations which obliges each contestant to have at least a charity of choice and objective). We also stress the importance of education for young women. To that end, we will be awarding the titleholders Educational Scholarships and Sponsored gifts & prizes to further this endeavor.
Miss Africa Netherlands reaffirms its objectives in empowering the girl child, increasing access to education, increase access to healthcare, health education and fighting diseases, advocating for women and children’s rights, encourage women’s initiatives in the Netherlands as well as Africa: Miss Africa Netherlands celebrates strong and committed women.
This pageant would be funded via sponsors, donations, the sale of tickets, registration of contestants and adverts placed in the pageant program/information booklet and or website. Through this pageant, we aim at pulling a large National audience; both Africans and friends of Africa and the pageant/information booklet would be given to each ticket holder.
On behalf of the contestants, I am therefore respectfully inquiring if you and or a friend would like to honor us as a sponsor/partner for this event. We are accepting sponsorship and partnership in different forms which includes but not limited to: financial donations, gifts, sponsoring of prizes, sacrificing time for a workshop, and all sort gestures that could contribute positively in the realization of this project. All funds for this event will be directed toward necessary expenditures to give the occasion the grandeur it deserves and if any profits, we would invest it in the continuation of our already existing scholarship scheme for the girl child in Africa.
Our success in this event depends solely on sponsors/partners like you and that success would be a direct reflection on the general African community both in the Netherlands and in Africa. In that regard, Miss Africa Netherlands invites you/your organization to be a visible participant in this exciting and prestigious event. Your support is extremely crucial to the success of the "2nd edition (2013-2014) of the annual Miss Africa Netherlands Pageant". For more information on the budget, and sponsorship/partnership benefits, I am more than pleased to provide it at your request.
As you well know, by supporting the role models of today, we strengthen our collective tomorrows. As a sponsor/partner, you would contribute to a hopeful future of Africa by helping one individual identify, develop and refine personal attributes such as self-esteem, public speaking ability, self confidence just to mention but a few, that would assist her throughout her life and the lives of others.
Your assistance as a sponsor/partner would not only serve as a means of publicity, but would also help the participants to prepare for the pageant with a minimum of personal expenses and also help our organization meet its objectives.
I would very much like to discuss the possibilities to support the event with you further and would be most grateful if you could contact me at your earliest convenience. I will also follow up in the course of the coming weeks, to see if you have any questions or require additional information.
