WHAT WE DO


We started the Bengaluru chapter of United Way Worldwide in 2008, with the vision to make lasting and effective change within our city and the rural areas around it. By bringing all communities together to create change locally, we in turn help them make the world a better place to live in in our small but determined way. All our work is informed by the SDGs and we are committed to do our bit to ensure they are achieved.

WHERE WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The United Way pillars are at the heart of everything we do. These guide our actions and drive our initiatives to touch innumerable lives through the following:

DISASTER MANAGEMENT

At United Way, we are always ready to support the ongoing needs of the community and step up our efforts in times of emergency.

In the face of natural or man-made disasters, we assist the community through the collection of monetary donation, volunteer recruitment, immediate and long-term rehabilitation.

RISE FOR RURAL

Despite strong economic growth, rural communities around Bengaluru still struggle to access the basic necessities. To create a positive impact, we worked with local partners to understand the needs of these communities and suggest solutions to offer them a better quality of life.

WAKE THE LAKE

The disappearing lakes of Bengaluru were becoming a threat to the environment and the city. Which is why we collaborated with the Karnataka Government, corporates, and citizens and successfully revived and conserved not just one, but twenty of the city’s lakes.

BORN LEARNING CAMPAIGN

It’s crucial for children (0-6 years) to develop physically and mentally in order to be school-ready. To build awareness and foster holistic growth, we teamed up with government-run anganwadis in peri-urban and rural areas that create the opportunity for a healthy and productive childhood.
