Renate took to Instagram to share her new initiative,  LR Youth Support, a Non-Profit Organisation aimed at bettering the lives of the youth.

β€œAs @missworldnamibia 2023, I will carry Namibia's flag with pride and humility, as I use this platform to support underprivileged children in Namibia," she said.

"I believe that the children of today are our leaders of tomorrow. Every child deserves the basic necessities, and that’s why I have established @lr_youth_support," she continued. 

Renate says she is a proud Namibian who is equally proud of all that the country has achieved. 

"With my platform, I will bring visibility and recognition to national non-profit organizations with my intent to empower founding supporters of such causes of goodwill to keep up excellent work and to attract attention of prospective sponsors and bring unification within my Community. My aim as the founder of @lr_youth_support is to narrow the gap between the haves and the have nots.

"As any Namibian, I adore my country and everything we have to offer the World. Our passion, our diverse and unique cultures, our dynamic and vast landscapes along with our incredible wildlife. I am immensely proud to stand tall on the international stage for our Namibian people” β€” @missworldnamibia 2023, @leone_renate," she concluded.
