Our Vodafone World of Difference candidates work closely with the number of community’s community to ensure that what we do is environmentally safe and sustainable and holistically addresses development with environmental sustainability.

We urge the queens as roles models to lead by example in bringing to life the festival theme. Utilize the platform to strongly advocate on the theme and raise awareness on issues such as land degradation, indiscriminate burning, poor deforestation and the need for reforestation.  Promoting the concept of separating solid waste and the age old environmental concept of reduce reuse and recycle.
