GSMA Ambassadors Programme

The GSMA Ambassadors Programme positions highly respected individuals from the mobile sector and beyond to raise awareness about the role of mobile technology in sustainable development and to inspire action to connect the unconnected. Through planned, targeted engagements, the programme opens doors to global, multi-stakeholder initiatives that focus attention and deliver digital inclusion at the regional, national and local levels.

The current ‘bench’ of Ambassadors is composed of an expanding group of leaders, all committed to the spread of mobile technology for social good.
