The world's first ever Mr and Ms Albinism Pageant Contest held on 21 Oct 2016. The event was organised by the Albinism Society of Kenya (ASK) in an effort to fight the stigma associated with albinism under the banner “Beauty Beyond The Skin” with Deputy President William Ruto as the chief guest. Money raised through the event will go to support other existing programs including cancer treatment, counselling and be used for the provision of sunscreen lotion which helps in prevention of skin cancer. Formed in 2006, ASK seeks social inclusion for persons with Albinism, addressing all violation of their human rights, as well as championing for better medical services in light of the challenges that are characteristic of the condition.
