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 United Through Sport offers Junior and Senior Schools of Excellence programs which provide children with the tools to secure a place at top-level highschools, many children struggle to pay their tuition. This is a sad truth that creates a barrier between poverty and success for many children.
Attending a top level high school provides a platform for disadvantaged children to attend university and/or pursue a career in sport, which has an enormous impact on future generations and can transform families and communities forever. Breaking generational cycles of poverty and increasing the quality and quantity of education in developing countries creates a healthier and more humane world.

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.
