The project chosen by Vanessa Ponce was Na-Vali, which means child in Mixtec, which studies the effects of internal migration of indigenous communities in Mexico and focuses especially on children.
Mexican Vanessa Ponce de León was crowned this Saturday as the winner in the Miss World contest , held in China.
This contest, which is broadcast in more than 200 countries, not only recognizes the beauty of the contestants, but also rewards their help to the community.
The project chosen by Vanessa Ponce was Na-Vali , which means child in Mixtec, which studies the effects of internal migration of indigenous communities in Mexico and focuses especially on children.
According to a video published by Miss World-Mexico , it is explained that these children have to migrate together with their parents, from Guerrero to the state of Guanajuato, to work as day laborers in extended working hours and in deplorable conditions.
Children, says Miss World, are not legally registered and there is no census that estimates how many live in the same conditions. These children suffer from malnutrition and often from infections that are not treated due to lack of health insurance.
Now the Miss World contest will support economically and in kind the organization of Vanessa Ponce de León to protect children and provide them with the necessary services.
During the award ceremony, where she had been a finalist along with the representatives of Belarus, Jamaica, Uganda, and Thailand, the Mexican highlighted the role of her organization.
“It is a project for the children of indigenous migrant day laborers who leave from Guerrero to Guanajuato to the pisca del chile and the children travel with their parents. So that they do not work in the fields, we separate them and give them education and nutrition. “
