Miss Progress International is the main event of Women for Progress-Supporting the World.
Each nation, a few months before the world finals, is matched with one of three themes: 
Environment – Health – Human Rights.

The representative from each country has to come up with a project that aspires to solve a problem related to that theme.
Contestants may be married, divorced, mothers, widows: none will be discriminated against.
