Our Ambassadors



Adam Rogers

Author, Senior UN Adviser
(Head of Communication & Regional Communication Adviser - UNDP; Regional Representative - UNOSSC; Global Coordinator - World Alliance of Cities Against Poverty) LinkedIn

"ConnectAID is needed now more than ever to ensure limited support gets to where the need is greatest. Solving the world’s challenges has never been about supply shortages – whether that supply is food, resources or medicine. It is always about coordination and matching supply with demand in a timely manner."

"I still believe that the world is a generous place and it is possible to live life 'on purpose"; but too often we get wrapped up in our own individual effort and forget that we can do so much more when we are "connected". That is what ConnectAID is all about. As the proverb goes: " If you want to go quickly go alone, if you want to go far, go together..."
