Princess Diana Wedaga Ayongo, the 3rd Runner Up for the Ghana’s Most Beautiful pageant has launched her foundation, Wedaga Empowers Foundation. 

The Foundation is expected to empower young people in the Upper East Region, particularly girls, to allow them make well-informed decisions about their lives. Prince Wedaga Ayongo said this when she spoke with Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show recently. 

“It seeks to promote reproductive health education. It is not only that. Just as the name says, we also seek to empower young individuals. With the right education, you are empowered and you are able to make informed decisions that in the long run, help you,” she said. 

The Wedaga Empowers Foundation, for the start, targets 3 primary areas; teenage pregnancies, menstrual health and hygiene as well as campaigns against sexual and gender-based violence. 

“All these came about due to experiences; other people’s experiences, personal experiences. It is a passion. It is a dream I am living bit by bit and I am grateful that I have people who also believe in that dream and also see what I see,” she added. 

The Wedaga Foundation is sponsored by AirtelTigo Ghana, the Ghana Maritime Authority and the Hannan Foundation. 

Princess Diana Wedaga Ayongo, the 3rd Runner Up for the Ghana’s Most Beautiful pageant has recalled with fond memories, her 13 week stay for the competition organised by Media Generale.

“For me, it was a great one. It was a learning experience. I had the opportunity to learn new things and also unlearn somethings that I thought were right.”

Princess Wedaga Ayongo explained that participating in a pageant, as prestigious as the GMB, has always been a dream for her.

“I have always decided to become a beauty queen. When you’re young, you see the glam, the confidence these ladies exude and then you are like I want to be like them someday. I want to also have a voice. I want to have an impact on people’s lives. That has basically been the dream that I have harnessed while being a little girl.”
