Blackfox Models were very priviledged to visit the crippled girls at jangwani girls sec school for an inspirational session with them with emphasis to work on their talents.
We found out they have soo much talents, there were designers, singers and models in the group.
It was such an honor to meet these girls, and we had our girls and boys really inspired.
We had a few goodies for the girls, it was a great session that their teachers asked us to back again for a proper session with them.
We were informed that the critical help that the school needs is a bajaj or a means of transport to take them to hospital whenever they get sick. We are currently looking for sponsors to help out buy a bajaj for jangwani girls.

These are some of the key things that models who would like to do promotional work will need to have.
1. LOOKS REALLY MATTER
Most companies will always go for models that have good looks, therefore its very important you know how to keep yourself.Some models often feel like its (discrimination) but thats just how it is. You will need to deal with it.
2. YOU NEED TO BE SMART
You will need o show up on time and as required by the client, dress accordinngly. You should know what you are selling, and never get drunk at the venue.
You should be very respectful and kind to the management and staff, get along with everybody and be approachable and liked by the clients and customers.
3. BRAND AWARENESS VS HUSTLING
Some promotional models are not brand ambassadors. You need to train in raising brand awareness. This means you need to create a positive image and possibly a relationship with the consumer even if that person will not commit an immediate purchase.
You will need to sell as much if required but without pissing people off. Dont ever bully people into buying your product on the event!
4.SOME VENUES AND PRODUCTS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS.
You can not choose, you need to adapt to which ever product or venue that is available at the moment.
5. DON’T TAKE REJECTION PERSONALLY.
No matter how sweet and cute you are, not matter how many keychains ,samples and coupons you have, some people jusy dont want to talk to you. This is normal.
Just take it as another learning, and dont get depressed about it. And move on to the next client.
All in all, in summary promotional models in Africa especially, need to be goodlooking, smart, and also should be able to handle work in a pressured enviroment.

3rd of April was an exciting day for most talented girls and boys in Blackfox as they got to meet a designer whose story was so inspirational to all those looking to pursue designing in Tanzania. Kulwa Mkwandule is a Tanzanian designer whom in just his third year into his designing career has already won one of the best awards in the country. His interest in designing started when he worked at a local fashion store Mr Price as the merchandiser.
Kulwa, very open and transparent about what he felt about the industry, and how appreciative he was towards Blackfoxs role during his career, he emphasised a lot on the fact that it will need a lot of hard work,and professionalism for a model to make it in Tanzania.
He urged the models to be as professional as possible and this will bring a positive picture to the rest of the african countries where fashion and modelling is seen as a something that has a little bit of hooganilsm, not very transparent according to some parents.
The training involved Mr Kulwa as a guest speaker into the models meet up, Some models also got to sign the contracts with Blackfox on the day which was a great achievement. The total number of models who have signed contracts with models now ads up to 20.
Blackfox Models Africa is a talent agency with headquarters in Dar es salaam Tanzania. The agency believes in recruiting talented young males and females and offers free training for their growth in the fashion industry as a well as works to ensure they get bookings with the top campaigns in the country. The agency is looking to work with other world top model agencies to be the mama agency for the models who can be contracted abroad by them.
