We are thrilled to welcome Bruce Djite to Team Human and Hope as an ambassador!
Bruce would be a familiar face to many of our supporters. A former Socceroo, Bruce has played for clubs in several countries including, Turkey, China, South Korea and Indonesia. Bruce has won all domestic trophies with Adelaide United, including the Premiership and Championship double in 2016. Bruce also tops the list as Adelaide United’s record goal-scorer.
Bruce spent over 4 years on the Executive and Governance committee of Professional Footballers Australia (the PFA), which is the Australian Players’ Union that represents all Australian professional footballers, including the Socceroos and Matildas. Bruce has spent time working at accounting firm PKF Adelaide, Fox Sports Australia and is currently Adelaide United’s Director of Football.
“I am excited to become an ambassador for Human and Hope Australia because I am a firm believer that the best way out of poverty is to empower those on the ground, by providing quality education and addressing gender inequality. I hope to help raise the profile of Human and Hope and shine a light on the fantastic work the organisation does,” says Bruce.
Bruce also serves as an ambassador for All Together Now, Australia’s only national charity with the sole focus of erasing racism, and Little Heroes Foundation, a South Australian charity that supports seriously ill children and their families.
We are excited to work with Bruce and use his respected profile to raise awareness about the work we support in Cambodia, and the importance of a local approach to development.
We at Human & Hope want to see a world where communities experiencing poverty are empowered and developed through locally driven initiatives. We raise funds to support a locally-run community centre in Cambodia, enabling them to run their own projects with their local expertise.
