TONGAAT beauty Divashni Reddy is once again taking on the pageant circuit - this time participating in the coveted Miss Earth South Africa competition.

Divashni has said she is passionate about Mother Nature. She is currently studying towards a Master’s Degree in Social Sciences at UKZN and is the proud co-owner of ND Digital Photography and Neas andamp; Divi Media, a commercial production company. She said that she entered the competition to grow and gain environmental knowledge as she is an active member of conservation in her community.

“Education can change who our youth become, how our elders perceive things and how we all treat our planet,” said Divashni. She hopes to, with the Miss Earth South Africa team, make a sustainable difference, educate the youth and empower young women to follow suit. The Miss Earth South Africa programme is focused on developing young women through the vehicle of environmental education.

It is a leadership programme that aims to empower young South African women with the knowledge and platform to create a sustainable difference in our plight to combat the destruction of South Africa’s natural heritage.

The programme helps to create an awareness of sustainable development, the environment, wildlife and the conservation of our natural legacy in South Africa, and ultimately the preservation of Mother Earth. “We are excited with the current group of Miss Earth South Africa Regional Semi-Finalists,” said Catherine Constantinides, executive director of the Miss Earth South Africa programme. “Projects to be completed include a food garden or waste project with a primary school, plant 10 indigenous trees as well as partake in the annual Miss Earth South Africa Clean-Ups. “We look forward to seeing the results as these young ladies embark on their green journeys within their communities.”
