The Miss UN-World Habitat Gala and Award Ceremony was organized to mark the October 3rd World Habitat Day. The idea is to reflect on the state of our towns and cities and the basic right of all, to adequate shelter. It is also intended to remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat, with wide range of activities in which all Stakeholders, Governments, International Community, Organized Private Sectors and Non-Governmental Organizations are involved.

The project director Amb. Hillary Emoh who said: ‘‘The objective of the pageant is to see how best we can bring Young People especially Females, with Beauty and Brain closer to the United Nations System and to constantly appreciate the effort of certain Individuals, Organizations, Corporate Bodies that have been in the for-front of addressing peculiar and generic issues affecting Urbanization, Environment and Humanitarianism’

Impressively one of the contestants happened to be from the IDP camps in Abuja. She was sponsored by Amb. Rachel Bakam. Although she didn’t win in the top five, but she was groomed and performed very well at the grand finale. The essence was to show love and support to the people living at the IDP camps and to extend a hand of fellowship.  The Project Director, Amb. Hillary Emoh said in an interview that one of the core objectives of the Project is to draw more intention to the very very poor living standards of the people in the IDP camps. He said that the Queen’s Pet Project will be centered more on how to alleviate the living condition of the people at the IDP camps and to also encourage the youths to return back to school with a project term ‘‘Help me Get Back to School’’ initiative. He also said that several other projects will be flag off soon that will also center on the IDP camps.
