Understanding the need for sustained education and learning options for young women, the Model Ambassador Program was created by Michael William-Paul to provide the tools necessary for young people to understand how to get active in philanthropic service, creating generations of cooperation building opportunities, in a world where giving back becomes an endless trend. Inspired from the fashion industry and the enthusiastic interest Michael saw with his clients, models, and audience to take part in a larger picture, the MAP was prestigiously launched at the United Nations during the inauguration of the World Fashion Forum in celebration of International Women’s Day in March 2013.
