Mike Sonko Named Good Deeds Goodwill Ambassador

  • Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko was on Tuesday named the Good Deeds Goodwill Ambassador in Kenya.

    The announcement was made when he hosted the organization's delegation led by CEO Kaynan Rabino at City Hall, Nairobi.

    Sonko earned the ambassadorial position based on the philanthropic work he has undertaken over the years.

    He disclosed that Nairobi would host a major event organised by the global body in 2019.

    "My administration is ready to partner with the organization to host the Global Deeds Day on 7th of April in Nairobi," he stated.

    Good Deeds Global is an internet-based social business and social movement organization structured around the 'pay it forward' and 'good deeds' concept.

    "Our main objective is to encourage people to be more generous to each other, also to consider doing randomly nice things for others, and for no apparent reason other than to simply put a smile on that persons face.

    "Additionally, we hope our work will produce effective results in the areas of enhancing peoples positive ways of thinking and encouraging them to have enthusiastic attitudes towards giving and helping out their fellow human beings," he stated

    The organization strives to positively impact one person at a time, aiming to bring about simple joy and happiness in that individual, and in-turn helping to overall build happier, stronger, more productive communities around the world.

    During his term as Senator, Sonko founded the Sonko-Rescue Team to offer services parallel to the county government then run by Evans Kidero.

    In 2017, the SRT was named the best NGO in Kenya by the NGO Coordination Board.
