United Through Sport

Network Member

United Through Sport is proud to claim a proven track record in changing lives. When the organisation was first formed in 2005, the initial focus was on teaching sport in the disadvantaged communities of Nelson Mandela Bay. Yet after reacting to the huge need in the township areas where United Through Sport was operating, this soon led to the introduction of a life skills curriculum, with a focus on HIV and AIDS prevention and promoting gender equality.

 

Faced by a cycle of poverty among the young people it serves, in 2011 the organisation began including academic support and academic pathways to success alongside football activities. Through this, participants are more likely to excel in school and follow diverse career paths. United Through Sport participants now regularly achieve 100% high school pass rates, with many of them becoming the first to go to university in their families.

 

With university graduation a feasible prospect under the organisation’s mentorship, so too is meaningful employment, transforming lives and helping instil positive change in the local community.

“United Through Sport changed my life, they gave me access to a top education, supported me with life skills and critical issue education along the way and funded me through University.  I am employed now and able to support my family and community because of them”
