Responsibilities :

  • The role is dedicated towards being an ambassador for one or two children (depending on your bandwidth) from the Siddi community.

  • As an ambassador, you will be responsible towards sharing their stories across your network (university, workplace etc) and in digital media to bring more awareness and support about their individual journeys.
  • You will also be responsible to raise funds (crowdfunding) to support the costs for their annual athletics training, education and nutrition. The estimated cost for training one athlete is ~$1500 USD per year.

  • Though not necessary, the individual should have reasonable social media following across Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter.
  • The individual should have great communications skill set and must able to share compelling stories in a clear and engaging manner.
