Over the years, many Olympians, World Champions, elite athletes and sports personalities have lent their names and time to support the UNDP family. Their mass appeal especially helps in motivating people to act in the interest of improving their own lives and those of their fellow citizens. These individuals are given the title of Goodwill Ambassador, Messenger of Peace, Special Representative, Champion for Sport or other status depending on the UNDP entity who has appointed them.
