About Us

Our Vision

United Way South Africa envisions a nation where all individuals and families achieve their potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

Our Mission

Our purpose is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the nation to advance the common good.

Our Relevance

United Way South Africa’s objective is to unite and connect all sectors of society – individuals, businesses, non-profit organisations and governments – 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.
