At the heart of Miss World is its humanitarian programme ‘Beauty With A Purpose’. This global platform inspires and empowers thousands of young women from around the world to use their talents to raise awareness and funds in aid of humanitarian causes that make real and lasting tangible differences to the poor, sick and disadvantaged.

Each year, in addition to championing a project from their home country that’s close to their heart, contestants work in the host country to raise funds for local charities and good causes.
