United Through Sport’s goal is not to develop sport itself but to use the power of sport to create opportunities for children, socially, physically and academically by developing their holistic skills, knowledge and ability and creating pathways to success.

They use sport in three main ways:

  • 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 curricula on topics such as HIV and AIDS awareness and gender equality 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
