WORTH is blown away by the growth we have had within the past few months and the increase in professional personal to our WORTH ambassadors team, on top of the already amazing mentors and Steering Board members. The growth has amplified the assistance which is on offer to all past and future applicants of the WORTH Partnership Project.

It is therefore with pleasure that we introduce the new ambassadors and their amazing professional expertise:
