UNDP Goodwill Ambassadors
UNDP, along with other UN agencies, has long enlisted the voluntary services and support of prominent individuals as Goodwill Ambassadors to highlight important causes. Their fame helps amplify the urgent and universal message of human development and international cooperation.
Goodwill Ambassadors help articulate the UNDP development philosophy of self-reliant opportunities and motivate people to act in the interest of improving their own lives and those of their fellow citizens.
They give their time freely to help UNDP in its challenging mission, and often travel wide stretches for first-hand observation so that they can bring the human development message to the industrialized world.
