Beauty with a purpose: Mrs Universe finalists, who are in Durban for the World Finals on September 2, 2017, visited three schools in the greater Durban area, on Monday.

Tapping into this years event theme of empowering women, creating change, the contestants from more than 80 countries, spoke to pupils about the importance of education and helped create awareness of the global gender-based violence crisis.

Pupils from Bhekisisa High School in Ntuzuma and two schools in Umlazi, namely Menzi High School and Vukuzakhe High School, met with the women to hear about how they overcame personal challenges to achieve success and make a meaningful contribution to their communities back home.

The beautiful contestants enjoyed spending time with the pupils.

To add to the festive atmosphere at the schools, Vodacom handed over 10 tablets to each of three schools. Teachers will award the ten high performing pupils in each school with the tablets at the end of the year.

The Mrs Universe event is a women-empowerment initiative that brings together married women between the ages of 25 and 45 who are doing phenomenal work to uplift and enhance their local communities through CSI initiatives.

The Mrs Universe World Finals will be held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre on September 2, 2017. For more information, visit http://www.mrsuniverse 2017.co.za
