World Vision Australia has announced the appointment of Australian professional tennis player Alex de Minaur as an ambassador.
Known for his exceptional tennis talent and commitment to social causes, de Minaur will play a vital role in advocating for children’s rights and humanitarian efforts.
In his new role, de Minaur will be a spokesperson and advocate for World Vision Australia to raise awareness about global issues affecting children, including poverty, education, and healthcare.
Alex has already jumped into the role between his tennis commitments and recently met a couple of World Vision Australia’s Young Mob Program participants, brothers Luc (17) and Matthew (Mouse) (15).
The Young Mob Program is a leadership program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth started by Aboriginal communities in NSW and run by World Vision Australia in partnership with Australian primary and secondary schools and local Indigenous people.
The program works with youth from years 5 to year 12 to build confidence, a positive sense of identity, to develop life and leadership skills, and strengthen their connection to culture.
His passion for making a positive impact aligns seamlessly with World Vision Australia’s mission to create lasting change in the lives of vulnerable children and communities around the world.
World Vision is Australia’s largest charity, driven by generous Australian donors, community members, staff and valued partners who mobilise to make a real and lasting difference in lives around the world.
They tackle the root causes of poverty and transform lives through development, relief, and advocacy work.
World Vision Australia CEO Daniel Wordsworth said they were thrilled to welcome Alex de Minaur as a World Vision ambassador.
“It’s great to see young Aussie high achievers like Alex wanting to give back and inspire children and young people through sport and education.
“Alex is passionate about seeing that children and young people are given the opportunities to realise their potential and fulfil their dreams.”
De Minaur expressed his excitement about the partnership and said: “I’m honoured to join World Vision as an ambassador,” Alex said.
“Tennis has given me a platform, and now I want to use it to positively impact the lives of children in need.
“Together with World Vision, we can make a real difference,” Alex added.
De Minaur’s mission is to see that children and youth are given the opportunities to realise their potential, and he sees this partnership as a way to fulfil this by providing a voice and opportunity to children and young people, particularly for those living in First Nations communities.
This collaboration marks a significant step in leveraging the influence of sports personalities to drive positive change and inspire others to contribute to humanitarian causes.
