Manyange, who was recently crowned Miss Africa Continental Zimbabwe, mobilised resources, including blankets, clothes and shoes, among other items, which she donated to the orphanage.
The model, who grew up in Gweru and later relocated to Harare, said she was doing her level best to transform the lives of less-privileged members of society.
“I have learnt that you can give someone dignity despite the circumstances the person might be in. I am going to continue using my title to transform my community,” she told The Standard Style.
Manyange said she didn’t face any difficulties in mobilising resources because she was assisted by a several well-wishers.
“After my interview on television on my intended projects to collect items for donations to orphanages, I received an overwhelming response from people who wanted to assist me,” she said.
Manyange said some of the items she donated came from students and teachers at Nova Status Christianity Academy in Harare.
She said among her partners was former Miss Gweru Michelle Tugwete, who committed to join hands with Manyange in future projects.
Miss Africa Continental finals are set for Johannesburg, South Africa, from November 23 to December 2 this year. The pageant is an annual event drawing participants from all over the continent.
