South Sudan debuted in Miss Earth in 2008 through Beauties of Africa as franchise holder and the winners of Miss Malaika- South Sudan's oldest pageant represented South Sudan in the Miss Earth pageant. However, Beauties of Africa lost the franchise in 2012.[6][7][8][9][10]

As part of their activities, they invited Tereza Fajksova, the Miss Earth 2012 winner, and she has become the first international beauty queen to visit South Sudan in 2013.
