A key element of the UTi culture is a strong sense of responsibility for the communities in which we do business and for the people in those communities. This sense of responsibility is driven by a belief in the right of all people to have access to the basics of life.
This belief, has led us to focus on Education, Health and Community infrastructure. Education is the poverty buster and educational facilities are the basis of a strong quality educational platform.
UTi delivers services to the community through the UTi Charitable Foundation (www.deliveringbetterlives.org) which was created in 1996 to provide a pathway for UTi and our team members to truly Deliver Better Lives. This work is done independently and in collaboration with clients, vendors and other NGOs.
In Southern Africa, Delivering Better Lives projects have been undertaken in South Africa, Zambia, Burundi, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Mozambique while in North Africa the focus has been in Egypt. Projects have included construction, renovation and outfitting of schools, hospitals and kindergartens together with broad based literacy and Community Health programs.
New projects are constantly being explored in all countries in Southern Africa and in many cases partnership opportunities are a key element of these projects.
