Who Are We?

A civic minded organisation set up by a variety of individuals, from all corners of South Africa, drawn together by the need to bring our nation back to a state of ‘’UBUNTU’’, ensuring that all South Africans, irrespective of race, creed and political affiliation, live together in harmony and  respect for all. ‘’We need to rediscover a national conversation where we talk more truthfully and listen more intently. Dialogue still has a crucial role in helping to create our dream of a South Africa that is just and reconciled,’’ Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

Founding Statement

The hearts and minds of South Africans have been compromised, partly through no fault of their own, by politicians, social media influencers and the written/spoken press.  UniteSA, an NPC formed by like-minded and dedicated South Africans from all walks of life, seeks to re-address this impasse by creating dialogue that is free, fair and thoughtful between all members of the Rainbow Nation, most importantly, by changing the message that is delivered to our communities.

The new message is one of love, kindness and compassion making South Africans forever conscious of their true worth, constructing the idea of freedom and peace of mind into the collective consciousness, so that it reaches our subconscious depths, remembering that whatever thought we anchor our minds upon, the mind magnifies.

Key points that underpin the foundation of UniteSA

  • Oppose hate speech,  animosity and division in all its forms
  • Aspire to the highest values, morals and principles, always acting with consideration, truth and utmost accountability

Aims and Objectives that UniteSA will spearhead

  • Environmental Sustainability Initiatives. Reduce carbon footprints to mitigate climate change
  • Direct Philanthropic Giving. Engage in charitable giving and volunteer efforts within our communities
  • Ethical Business Practices. Improve labour policies and embrace fair trade
  • Dialogue. The more we celebrate our differences the more open our conversations will be with each other. The solution lies within the problem. The answer is in every question.

What does UniteSA stand for?

The racial divide in South Africa has always been the elephant in the room that few acknowledge and fewer still want to discuss in open forums. UniteSA seeks to address these issues in a manner that is respectful and mindful to all. This allows us to have the building blocks to continually construct a better South Africa.

  1. Open Dialogue between all races                                                                         
  2. Forgiveness and the ability to move on
  3. Servitude
  4. Debates on society’s most pressing challenges.

’We promote & advance RSA & oppose all that may harm it, devoting ourselves to the well-being of the Republic and all its people’’

What is Unite SA willing to achieve?

Unite SA primarily needs to build the confidence of the country through cementing stronger friendships/relationships between all races regardless of associations. This is the foundation that will hold up all the pillars of Ubuntu, driving servitude to all as the capstone of the organisation ‘’In order to be a leader, one needs to be a servant’’ Nelson Mandela

How does Unite SA bridge the chasm?

  1. Public dialogue
  2. Positive and enabling thought patterns embedded into our nation
  3. Values and pledge of service to our country and all South Africans
  4. Tangible donations for housing, schooling and immediate assistance for vetted grants
