Our Work

United Way South Africa (UWZA) believes that everyone is entitled to a quality education, a family-sustaining income and good health. And we’re not alone. Education, Income and Health are also the indicators by which the United Nations measures community development worldwide.

We work to make sure people get the support services they need right now while simultaneously addressing the root causes of key issues – that’s how we create true community impact. We know that by improving education for all children, we’re setting them on the path to high school graduation and college success. We know that those children will go on to hold skilled jobs and be financially equipped to support their families. We know that good health is directly linked to a successful life.

UWSA establishes economic pathways for disadvantaged South Africans to become meaningfully engaged, capacitated, and actively involved in the county's formal economy.
