The FAO Goodwill Ambassadors Programme was initiated in 1999. The main purpose of the programme is to increase public awareness and to disseminate information on issues related to food security, hunger and poverty in the world. With this programme, FAO intends to mobilize increased support and enhance the understanding of the public for the cause of "Food for All".

The Goodwill Ambassadors, through their public appearances, contacts with the international media and humanitarian work, help expand understanding of how the ideals and objectives of the Organization demand everyone's attention.
