Some of the programs initiated by the organization are Milennium Development Goal’s (MDG’S) and Sustainable Development Goal’s (SDG). In optimizing various programs that they set up, particularly development programs, United Nations assigned ambassadors who were responsible in introducing the programs to the whole world. Those ambassadors were elected from public figures known as Goodwill Ambassadors. In addition to electing ambassadors from real figures, United Nations also had evoked animated figures as the ambassadors.
