United Through Sport

Dedicated to improving health and education in disadvantaged communities through the power of sport

LAST UPDATED AT 14:07 ON Thu 27 Sep 2012

Sport is a universal language. It unites individuals, groups and nations to work towards a common goal. United Through Sport, which was established in 2004, is a charity dedicated to improving health and education, and to building life skills in children from disadvantaged communities in Africa, South America and Asia through the power of sport. Our two main areas of work are the Mass Participation Programme, which reaches thousands of people every year; and our School of Excellence, which supports children to improve in their academic development and love of sport. Please support us by organising a fundraising event or sponsoring a child. You could even visit us overseas and help us coach sport to our kids during a holiday, gap year or career break.
