NGCB donates K200, 000 to MPIP PNG

The National Gaming Control Board has donated K200, 000 to the Miss Pacific Island Pageant PNG, through its ‘give back program’.

NGCB believes in women empowerment and has been backing the pageant for several years now.

Presenting the cheque on behalf of the company, Chief Executive Officer, Imelda Agon, acknowledged the efforts put forward.

She said for one, this prestigious event allows young Pacific women to showcase their individual nation’s cultural diversity and sets the platform for them to intellectually and wisely contest against each other for the crown.

“The pageant in the country empowers young modern women, not only to be successful in their education and their professional careers but also to promote a generation of young women ambassadors’ embodying both our rich culture and the modern classification of a successful professional woman,” she said.

Agon extended the company’s deepest gratitude to the reigning Miss PNG and Miss Pacific, Abigail Havora, for the achievement and being a role model to other young women of the country and the Pacific.

NGCB believes that the funding will enable the program for the pageant to continue in the country to develop young women.

Reigning Queen Miss Abigail Havora said it takes a lot of hard work to put the pageant together but funding makes the work easier.

She thanked the NGCB on behalf of the pageant and other young women, for the continuous support and in believing in young women.

On a personal note, Havora said her duties as queen has also been made easier with the assistance from NGCB.

CEO Agon pledged NGCB’s support to this program in the years to come.
