Charity profile

In 2007 Uthando was created to link the local and international tourism industry to a diverse collection of innovative and inspiring community development projects in South Africa. The model is unique:  Travelling Philanthropy and Responsible Tourism contributes substantially in a meaningful way to charitable causes.

The Organisations we support are highly reputable, well managed and enormously impactful. They work tirelessly to assist, support and develop their communities through a broad range of initiatives. From large infrastructures, to medium grassroots projects, to individuals, Uthando champions their good work so essential to the ongoing development of our beautiful country’s future.

In the 2018 / 2019 Financial Year, Uthando donated R5.1 million across 54 community development projects and creative individuals. The legacies of the past have left enormous need in South Africa and indeed the world, but we know that every heart touched by the incredibly enriching experiences we offer our clients is another link in the chain to healing. We are honoured to be a part of that process.
