Phiona Bizzu represented Uganda at Miss World 2012. For her Beauty with a Purpose project Phiona worked with orphans and street children at various locations around her country, using her position to raise awareness to the situation, and also donating vast amounts of her time volunteering at the centres taking care of the disadvantaged youths in their care. The time she spent with these children was invaluable for their upbringing, as she provided loving care and attention to vulnerable young people, at a time of real need. Her personal background means she is very understanding of what these children are going through and gives her the strength and wisdom to provide the best care. Below is an account of her activities, through her own words.

My name is Phiona Bizzu I am 19 years old and I am the current Miss Uganda 2012/13. I come from a family of four. We are three girls and one boy. Our parents passed away when I was seven years old, so I grew up in an orphanage in Mukono District. At the moment I have a passion to work with street children. There is a home in Jinja especially for street girls. I want to work with them. But most of the street children are orphans just like I am, so I know what they have been through.

I would like to use the crown to pass on my passion of working with orphans in various homes in Uganda, like the street girls in Jinja; I would really like to help them as much as I can. Girls are much more vulnerable than boys. They can be molested by older people who lie to them that they want to help them, yet they have other interests, so the girls are really vulnerable.

To fulfill my ambitions I have been working with the Kampala City Council Authority, to help us mobilize funds and create awareness that these people on the streets and orphans need our help. As well as involving them, there is a government aid street children organisation in Uganda. I would like to involve those people too, to continue my work to help the street children of Uganda.
