GLOBAL AMBASSADOR PROGRAM
Our Global Ambassadors are a passionate group of students and professionals dedicated to supporting the mission and vision of Unlock Foundation. By spreading awareness, fundraising, planning social activities, and leveraging partnerships, they engage others, and help connect them to our efforts.
Through our Global Ambassadors we are building a movement to provide education for all children everywhere. As a representative of Unlock Foundation, you will be a member of this community for change.
Joining the Global Ambassadors is a 1-year commitment and requires a donation of $57 (representing the 57 million children out of school worldwide).
We encourage our Global Ambassadors to participate in bi-monthly conference calls to stay up-to-date on Unlock Foundation's projects and global education issues. Additionally, we support Global Ambassadors in spreading Unlock Foundation's message through social media, fundraising events, and other marketing ideas. There is no set time commitment for being a Global Ambassador, and anything from 10 minutes a month to 10 hours a month can make a huge difference!
Global Ambassador Annual Donation: $57
GLOBAL AMBASSADOR SPOTLIGHT
LOURENS LOUX GEPHARDT
Martin Morocky, more commonly known as The Dogg, is a multi-award winning musician from Namibia. As one of the best-selling artists in his country he has become a role-model for children all over the Namibia and southern Africa. The Dogg, an entrepreneur in his own right, has transformed his music career into a brand that includes Mshasho Music Productions, Mshasho Clothing, and a recently published autobiography, The Dogg: Untold Story. Throughout his long career, Mr. Morocky has stressed the importance of education and empowering students across Namibia to succeed.
As the first celebrity in Unlock Foundation's Global Ambassador Program, The Dogg will become our voice and a voice for the thousands of students in Namibia lacking the resources to stay in school. We will work together to support education-related initiatives and raise funds for our projects.
While Lourens Loux Gephardt might be from Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, you can him spot all over the international media in the past two years. From ELLE, The Guardian, and the Daily Mail, he has made his passion of fashion into an exciting business. He goes by Loux the Vintage Guru, a reference to his dapper, impreccibly groomed, retro-look. Loux is on track to become one of Namibia's most famous fashion designers with a new business, LouxDesigns, and a very powerful social media presence showing off his nostalgic 1960s garb.
As an Unlock Foundation Ambassador, Loux promises to use fashion to help impact the world. With his world-wide appeal, he will help encourage others to take part in our Photo Campaign and help us develop new designs for Unlock Foundation's t-shirt collection.
