United Way Chennai, a part of the worldwide United Way network, was founded in 2010 and focuses mainly on basic education completion among underprivileged children, decreasing maternal and child mortality and improving lives of the differently abled. We engage people and organizations in innovative solutions that are transforming that vision into reality.

United Way Chennai plays a major role in bridging the gap between various stakeholders like communities, corporates, NGOs, Government bodies & volunteers. United Way Chennai also acts as a CSR consultant for various corporates & directly implements the CSR projects of a few corporates.

In the upcoming year, United Way Chennai will be initiating various interventions for persons with disabilities like setting up para sports facilities across districts of Tamil Nadu, improving accessibility, employability for persons with disabilities and most importantly early detection & intervention of children with special needs.

We would like to recall the overwhelming support received from Chennai’s running community in the 2017 marathon, by thanking those who ran for NGOs partnered with United Way Chennai.

Mr. Lakshmi Narayanan (Founder Member – United Way Chennai)

United Way Chennai would like to invite you to raise funds for the cause of making sports accessible to persons with disabilities this year by running for us in the Chennai Runners Chennai Marathon 2019.
