Do you remember how you learned about Friends of Ngong Road? Chances are, you knew someone who was involved as a donor, sponsor or volunteer. They told you about the difference the organization was making for children in Kenya for a relatively small investment. You signed up for our newsletter, came to an event, gave a donation, sponsored a student, or started following us on social media because you believe in the mission and trust your friend or family member. Friends and family networks are the most common path for people getting involved at Friends of Ngong Road.
We are now formalizing that friends and family method with the introduction of our new Ambassador Program as a strategy for growth. Ambassadors are people who know and love Friends of Ngong Road, agree to learn more about it through ongoing learning opportunities and commit to recruit two sponsors and raise $2,000 each year for two years. Ambassadors can be of any age, background, and experience with the organization. Ambassadors believe in the mission and want others to know about the chance they have to completely change the trajectory of a child’s life for a relatively small investment of approximately $2 per day. They believe the opportunity to change a child’s life is too important to not be spread.
A shout out to the first four Ambassadors who started volunteering with the organization last month. They are high-energy, dedicated leaders paving the way for this program and creating more opportunities for students to join the program and transform their own lives. We thank you!
