The Miss Cameroon South Africa Organisation wishes you many seasons’ greetings and warm regards as we approach this time of giving, unity and thanksgiving. The Miss Cameroon South Africa pageant is an excellent initiative to promote social cohesion and cultural exchange between South Africans and other nationals, in the aftermath of several xenophobic attacks in South Africa. Following the second edition of Miss Cameroon South Africa 2016, our new Queens and princesses are committed to creating impactful change in South Africa and Cameroon, while being ambassadors for social cohesion between both nations.
In the spirit of giving, our Queens and Princesses would like to invite you to a night of fashion fused with artistic performances on the 08th December 2016, in collaboration with House of Lenze and Yves Couture at Hilbrow Recreation Centre, Johannesburg. The winners from our second edition pageant will model outfits from House of Lenze and Yves couture, which will be auctioned at the end of the show for the support of charity. If you are a more soulful person or perhaps you prefer to be jovial, performances from poets and comedians will surely entertain you. A light refreshment will also be served. This promisingly fun filled night is aimed at raising funds for House of Hope Orphanage, our official charity organisation in Ngyen-Mbo village, Cameroon and Zinzi Children home in Tembisa, Johannesburg. House of hope is a safe haven for 25 orphans while Zinzi Children home has 12, The funds will go towards obtaining resources required for Christmas and for school such as uniforms, shoes and books, before school commences in January 2017.
House of hope orphanage was founded in 2013 by Malvis Ayaba & sons Mckevin Ayaba and Sama Ayaba, Cameroonian nationals who saw the plight of orphans in their area and decided to do something about it. It all started with 7 kids, and now the orphanage has 25 Children.
There are thousands of children in Cameroon who are not receiving the love and care they need. Our goals are to help as many as possible to grow into healthy, stable, educated, mature and spiritual adults.
• To improve the quality of life of orphans through structure objectives
• To provide the basic needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, medical care, etc...to the orphans.
• To provide orphans with a loving home environment that will meet their physical, psychological and spiritual needs, allowing them to grow and develop to their full potential.
• To ensure that orphaned children receive an education through high school and/or learn a trade, preparing them to live on their own.
• To provide orphaned children with education on HIV/AIDS prevention and other health related issues.
The past three years has not been easy especially as children keep coming and their studies keep changing as they move to the next class. It has been quite challenging and we continue to plead with people like you with kind heart to support us continuously for without your support, we will not be able to meet the objectives of the orphanage, said Co-Founder, Mckevin Ayaba.

Miss Cameroon South Africa 2016 - Joan Awum Akob had this to say, as one of the organisers of this fundraising initiative: “My heart is swelling with excitement at the thought of being a part of this excellent initiative to extend love, care and adequate resources through raising funds, for the brilliant children at the House of Hope Orphanage and Zinzi Children Home in Tembisa, South Africa. This has hit home for me and this is what I am here for! As a Bamenda girl and someone very familiar with Mbengwi, I can certainly call these children my brothers and sisters”. “Everybody deserves somebody who encourages them to believe in, go after, capture and live out their life’s purpose fearlessly”-Ty Howard. “This is what we strive to impart, be the support structure to enable growth” – Joan Akob.
