KWADWESI-BASED company, The Unthinkable Events (Pty) Ltd, hosted a beauty pageant on June 30 at the Henry Fasi Hall.

The beauty pageant gave the youth of the KwaDwesi, KwaDwesi Extension, Joe Slovo and KwaMagxaki areas the opportunity to win the titles of Miss Cutelligent (ages 6 to 12) and Miss Beautelligent (ages 13 to 18).

It was the first in a series of events aimed at promoting youth development in the Nelson Mandela Bay, with specific focus on minimising drug and alcohol abuse and the amount of school drop-outs and teenage pregnancies.

Other than beauty pageants, the types of events include academic awards, school debates and educational camps.

Vuyolwethu Mbinambina, founder of The Unthinkable Events, said that her long-term plan is to create employment opportunities.

She ran the beauty pageant with no budget to speak of and was amazed at its success.

The Unthinkable Events will be hosting their next event on September 2 in Zwide.
