Have You Heard About The Beauty Pageant Raising Money To Help The People Of Africa?
The "African Most Beautiful USA Pageant" Showcases Beautiful And Talented Women While Helping To Uplift Africa

The "African Most Beautiful USA," pageant is an event which showcases the beauty, talent, and brilliance of young women of African descent and direct lineage between the ages of 18-28.  The purpose of the pageant is also to raise money for important causes in Africa.  It is organized by the Abofrem Area Foundation, Inc. (AAF). 

Abofrem Area Foundation, Inc. (AAF) is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization based in the United States. The AAF is the brainchild of Nana Obaahemaa Nkrumah Akosua Adasa III, a Ghanian-American, who started the organization with a desire to provide the village of Abofrem, her original hometown located in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, as well as the surrounding villages in Ghana and other African countries access to food, employment, education, sanitation, and medical needs.

In the year 2019, the foundation proudly constructed a new school building which encompasses Grades 1-5 to benefit the children in the village so that none would be left behind in gaining vital education.  A medical hospital was constructed within the village in 2021 to be dedicated January 5, 2022.
