Former beauty queen, Tomi Lydia Salami, through her Aurora International Campaign, is championing a positive change in the world of tourism and philanthropy. The former Miss Tourism (MBGN) had been quietly impacting the lives of needy kids in public schools in various states in the last three years.

Recently, Tomi turned Kwara State into a hub of development for education and tourism, as she concluded her Kits For Kids Africa initiative, where she generously donated school bags, sandals, stockings, stationery, exercise books and many more to thousands of needy kids in the state’s public schools. Supporting Tomi during the donations were visiting beauty queens from India, Botswana and South Africa.

They all joined to enlighten the kids on the benefits of education and encouraging them to strive for greater heights in the future.

Speaking on the success of her foundation’s outing, Miss Tomi expressed her gratitude to Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed; Microsoft; Zuma Energy; Bubbles and every single supporter, who contributed in one way or the other to the success of Kits For Kids Africa.

“It was truly an amazing experience – hectic and time bound but very rewarding. The children in the schools we visited were ecstatic. They were truly inspired to look beyond their circumstances and to hold on to bigger dreams. I hope we are able to receive more support and thus cover more grounds on our next outing.”
