United Way South Africa - A Local Movement With A Global Footprint

United Way advances the common good and creates opportunities for a better life for all by focusing on education, income and health – the building blocks for a good quality life. The United Way movement mobilises millions to action – to give, advocate and volunteer to improve conditions in their communities.

Our Relevance

United Way South Africa’s objective is to unite and connect all sectors of society – individuals, businesses, non-profit organisations and the government – to create long-term social change and mobilise the collective caring power that produces healthy, well-educated and financially stable individuals and families. We leverage the unique contributions of diverse individuals and organisations and are enriched by local knowledge and expertise in creating better lives for all.

United Way South Africa’s point of departure is the national development plan 2030, which identifies major areas of focus towards addressing the challenges of poverty, inequality and unemployment. More specifically poor education, the burden of disease and enterprise development is in line with United Way’s intended areas of intervention.
