“Our inaugural Mr. & Miss Tranquility, held in collaboration with the Kenya Film Classification Board (KFCB), garnered over 700 youth and stakeholders nationwide. has loosely translated means state of calmness and peace, we seek to use fashion as a tool for promotion of peace, stability and tourism,” Victor Paul said.
Wezesha’s project manager Maryanne Kilanga noted that various crowned winners will be expected to uphold titles obligations, various projects on peace building and the promotion of Tourism in the country.
“The major assumption behind the notion of peace tourism is that when people travel frequently all over the world, it helps them get to know new people, cultures, values etc. That experience is capable of increasing mutual understanding among people who have been living in diverse cultural backgrounds. Tourism provides an effective tool for promoting peace which in turn leads to cross cultural interaction resulting in tolerance, national integration, compassion, goodwill, educational standards, justice and mutual respect for each other,” Kilanga said.
