Become an Ambassador

Want to get involved with Samos Volunteers in a big way? Then why not become an SV ambassador!

Ambassadors are our permanent representatives in your communities. They are people who believe in SV’s work in lifting up displaced people through awareness, education and psycho-social activities and want to share in the responsibility of making our work sustainable. Ambassadors take action to enrich SV by bringing higher visibility to our work and sustainability of programming by fundraising among their networks.

To be part of Samos Volunteers was an amazing experience for me in so many ways. I think it wasn’t until I got home, when I had time to see things from a distance and to let all the new impressions sink in, that I realized what an impact the month on Samos had on me. Samos Volunteers is a very nice and genuine organisation, very close to reality and to the people. You can maybe not change the world, but you can make a different in 10 or maybe 100 people’s lives, and that also means a lot. This realization, together with the interest and positive feedback from people I met back home, is what motivated me to keep working for SV also after leaving Samos.

After coming back from Samos to Poland we gave a presentation about the refugees’ situation on Samos and worldwide and about the amazing work of Samos Volunteers. Over 30 people came to listen to our story as well as to ask questions, share views and concerns in a Warsaw cafe. We were happy to see that more than 200 people “marked as interested” in our public event on Facebook. After coming back to our hometown we’ve felt a need to share what we have witnessed - the difficult conditions that the migrants are facing and the different ways to actually help and support them. We genuinely encourage others to volunteer with Samos Volunteers.
