This?Sunday?at 8:20am, Kona Brown will be telling her project me story on the blog's weekly radio slot. Angela Ludek from Radio 2000 will interview Kona about her achievements and the ask her what makes her project me story unique.

I interviewed Kona in October of last year and this is what she had to say: Kona Brown tells her project me story

This is what Kona has been doing since then:

Kona still runs the Child Headed Households project for Rays of Hope and they have been privileged to add a number of new families this year so far. 3 of the older children have this year had an opportunity to attend a training facility to study a trade. They have also started expanding on the recreational activities offer to the kids in the project and Kona leads her team to continue to be intentional about nurturing the childheaded families and seeing every child as an individual with a destiny. In order to raise funds for the many plans and expansions within Child Headed Households this year, Kona is planning a fundraising event, called Art with Heart, which is set to take place on the 8th?of May. The event will aim to raise funds through an evening showing and sale of donated artwork from both professional and amateur local artists. The event will be held at the Life on Main exhibition space in the Johannesburg CBD.

Kona and Elvis continue to work together in running the Elvis Blue Music Academy ( in various disadvantaged communities across South Africa. Through the music academy disadvantaged and orphaned children get an opportunity to learn to play the guitar under professional tuition. By establishing relationships with existing NPO?s who already have a presence in disadvantaged communities, the Elvis Blue Music Academy aims to branch out into these communities to offer the children there an opportunity to become involved and learn a musical skill. The most resent establishment of the music academy in Zandspruit has thus far been very successful.

In the year of her reign, Kona aims to be a spokesperson for her causes, as well as to take every opportunity to not only raise funds for causes that share her passion for orphaned and vulnerable children, but to also inspire fellow South Africans to get involved in their communities and make a difference in a meaningful and practical way. She would also like to highlight that the Mrs United Nation SA Pageant is a pageant about beauty with substance, that it?s about real woman, doing real work that makes a real difference.
