Thousands of disadvantaged and vulnerable children who didn’t have access to adequate education or vocational training participate in United Through Sport’s programs in order to reach their full potential in sport, education and health. While participating in these life-changing programs, these children need access to nutritional meals that provide them with the nutrients, vitamins and minerals needed for their sport education.
Many children in disadvantaged and vulnerable communities rarely receive opportunities that allow them to play and enjoy the sports they love, while simultaneously receiving a life-changing education that improves their health and life skills. These improvements can have an enormous impact on future generations and can transform families and communities.

United Through Sport 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 and using sport for improved education by providing pathways to success for talented and dedicated individuals through scholarships to top local schools and tertiary education.
