Encounter

We draw on our long-standing relationships with grassroots organisations – our trusted partners in churches, businesses and social development organisations – to build productive alliances and deliver programmes that empower.

Equip

We get resources to where they will make the biggest difference. Local communities and churches, which often don’t have the capacity to fundraise themselves. We target resources where they help to build self-sustainability, ensuring your donation is tracked by a simple and effective audit.

Empower

At NewDay United we believe that equipping people with the right values is as important as financial support or training. We aim to raise up leaders by hosting networking events, away days and retreats which provide the emotional and moral support required to be as effective as possible in the most challenging environments.

True to the spirit of “Ubuntu” (an ancient African word meaning ‘humanity to others’) where emphasis is placed on community influencing the benefit of the greater, NewDay United collaborates with organisations that are already changing their world. We work with churches, businesses, community-based organisations and individuals.

We are committed to championing the champions, enabling them to make a difference and become change agents in their communities, their nation and beyond.

This is already happening increasingly through:

Educational programmes to see people of all ages equipped to thrive.

The development of entrepreneurial skills through mentoring and internships.

Holistic health services working at grassroots offering professional, confidential and affordable health care.

Scholarships for those who are future leaders and pioneers
