Read About Our Model
Who We Are
United Through Sport is a UK registered development through sport charity helping disadvantaged communities reach their full potential in sport, education and health. We do this in Africa, South America and will be launching in Asia soon.
UK Registered Charity, No. 1102107.
We are committed to using sport as a tool to develop disadvantaged and vulnerable youth. We do this by:
- Using direct sports coaching – for its health benefits, improved emotional well-being and increased life skills (teamwork, leadership, decision making, communication).
- Using sport to discuss critical issues – by delivering curriculums on topics such as HIV/AIDS awareness in a fun and interactive manner on the sports field.
- Using sport for improved education – by providing pathways to success for talented and dedicated individuals through scholarships to top local schools and tertiary education.
What We Do
United Through Sport supports two core programmes, built up by a number of projects in each country we work in. The first is our Mass Participation Programme which gives thousands of disadvantaged kids the chance to play and enjoy the sports they love. The second is our Schools of Excellence (Junior and Senior) programme which provide top-level coaching and academic schooling for aspiring athletes.
How We Do It
United Through Sport is built on a clear pyramid structure. Our Mass Participation Programme forms the bottom tier, our Schools of Excellence forms the second tier, and our careers in sport forms the top tier. All our work, donations and volunteering go into supporting this pyramid structure.
