The beauty proved she was determined to lead by example and change lives as she served as guest of honor at GrandWest - the largest entertainment destination of its kind in South Africa and Sun International's most successful casino.

Education is particularly close to Nokeri’s heart so it was with excitement and enthusiasm that she took part in the launch of this important initiative.

The Limpopo born title holder gave a heartfelt message of support as four education centres in Cape Town came on line, able to provide much needed resources for children in need, thanks to a R1-m donation from GrandWest.

Speaking at one of the centres, Breadline Africa’s Little Angels Educare in Wallacedene, Ndavi said: “It is such an honour to be a part of this, to be here at the start of something that will change lives.”

GrandWest General Manager, Mervyn Naidoo said: “We believe it is important to invest in our children from an early age as they are our future. To have a country of capable and responsible future citizens, the private sector has to get involved.”

The selected centres strive to nurture and develop the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of the young children in their care.

In a theme following on from her very recent homecoming tour of her home province Limpopo, Nokeri spoke about the need for resources and infrastructure to ensure that all children receive the education they need. Redressing the inequalities in education resulting from the apartheid era is what Ndavi is devoting her reign to. Her advocacy campaign is structured around highlighting the resource scarcity and finding ways to correct the imbalance.

Ndavi was crowned at the glittering pageant finale which was held at the SunBet Arena at Time Square in Pretoria on 13 August 2022.

During her acceptance speech, she said she would also be focusing on education. According to her, failure enabled her to grow and achieve her goals: “Growing up, I struggled with mathematics in school. With every bad result I received, I started believing and accepting that it was something that I just couldn’t do until I decided to approach it with a different attitude. I decided that I am the author of my own story and so I redefined myself as a woman who is capable of doing all things she sets her mind to with excellence. This is the attitude that I carry with me into every journey and it has shaped the person I am proud to be today," she said,
