The event is scheduled to be held in November in an African country to be announced in due course.
The beauty pageant according to organisers is described as a platform created to empower and showcase beauty and fashion globally.
Its head office is in Cape Town, South Africa, but it operates in several other countries in Africa and globally, through national directors.
Its core focus, as stated, is to bring together women from diverse cultures to learn from each other and find common ground in pursuit of a transformation and change agenda.
The Miss Culture International organises and manages quality pageants in order to unite people from diverse cultures, learn from each other, and celebrate different cultures through beauty and fashion.
Molefe, 19, has met the criteria for suitable candidates which include amongst other things, age, being a citizen of the country she is representing and meeting all the administrative requirements.
"The management of Film Sector Groundbreakers (FSG) will be working with her and the Beauty Pageant Association of Lesotho, to support her in her journey which not only involves participating in the event in November, but also other build-up programmes such as national casting and a boot-camp that will be held in SA.
"At the main contest, amongst others, she will be judged on her cultural costume, knowledge of global cultures, knowledge of how to prepare some of the world cultural dishes, physical beauty and personality," explains FSG in a statement.

The Miss Culture International queen will also travel across the world and visit over 50 000 school children, members of the business community and cultural organisations. She will be a routine guest-speaker, a custodian of culture, high fashion wearing, smile-bearing example of the diverse beauty and intelligence.
Molefe who is from Maseru, won the Miss Culture Lesotho beauty pageant in Leribe in 2018 as a learner at Lesotho High School.
Since then, the pageant has not been physically staged due to factors imposed by the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic.
Feeling excited about competing at International level, she says: “It has been my dream to participate in international beauty contests and Miss Culture Lesotho has offered me that opportunity. I'm a brave person who does not shy away from challenges, regardless of my young age. My ultimate goal is to compete in the Miss Universe.”
