Ensuring their contributions are directed effectively towards addressing the most pressing issues. Setting the highest standards of integrity.


Environment-Rainwater Harvesting

Chennai faced the worst ever water crisis in decades and the years ahead also look bleak. School children were the worst affected as several schools had to remain closed since they were unable to deal with the water shortage.This has prompted the United Way team to create rainwater harvesting systems in all Govt. schools in Tamil Nadu and spread awareness on the importance of RWH among students and the surrounding community.

Environment-Restoration Of Water Bodies

United Way’s intervention aims at reviving the dying lakes of Chennai. They work on reclaiming and restoring several lakes which are on the verge of total collapse and ruin, by clearing them of sewage, improving the quality of water and turning them into active community spaces.


United Way Worldwide designed an initiative that aimed at bridging the gap in early child development by providing public awareness and mobilization strategy to accelerate a community’s early learning goals. Within India, the UW network has customized the global program to suit local requirements of the Anganwadis that typically cater to children between the ages of 0-6 years, living in poorer neighbourhoods.

Disaster Relief

The United Way team acts with immediate response when disaster strikes. They began with providing relief materials, sanitation response and now they work closely with trusted national NGO partners to facilitate rehabilitation and livelihoods for the people.

Environment-Urban Forestry

Rapid urbanization has destroyed the natural green cover of the city. UWC seeks to regreen these lost spaces through urban forestry and afforestation. The team aims to plant a minimum of 100 acres of urban forests for a greener Chennai.

Income and Livelihood

During the initial years of United Way Chennai, the organization facilitated programmes that offered skill-based training to people with disabilities and helped to identify relevant employment opportunities for them in the corporate sector, both in public and private organizations. This initiative was taken up to ensure diversity and inclusion in the corporate sector. Currently, they are focussing on enabling better livelihoods for people with disabilities. Be it through offering educational scholarships to people with multiple disabilities or via projects like setting up petty shops for small business to be run by people with disabilities.
