Uthando (Love) South Africa
Uthando (meaning love in Xhosa) is a unique non-profit and Fair Trade in Tourism accredited organization which aims to raise funds for life changing community development projects in South Africa.
Despite its breath-taking natural beauty and diverse cultures, South Africa has many acute social challenges – millions of its citizens live in extreme poverty and face daily struggles to survive, let alone flourish. Motivated by love, compassion and respect for our common humanity, Uthando seeks to form part of the solution to meet these challenges.
As an award winning model of Responsible Tourism and Travelling Philanthropy, Uthando is drawing on an extensive network of cherished partnerships in tourism and community development, with the ultimate goal of linking these two sectors in a myriad of innovative, sincere and meaningful ways.
Through our deeply respectful and culturally-sensitively Philanthropic Tours and experiences, Uthando celebrates our Proudly South African culture, while shining a light on the many deserving but hitherto unsung community heroes whose efforts so often go unrecognized and unrewarded.
Through a powerful combination of love and action, Uthando works to make South Africa, and the world, a better place.
Once again, in 2017 Team Uthando will be cycling this race to raise funds to support the incredible work of the Amy Biehl Foundation ..
