Welcome to UNA-SA Pretoria Chapter


What We do

Our ultimate aim is to accomplish united cooperation and coordination
among members of society in working towards positive change in the region.
There are three consecutive goals that we have set: (i) increased awareness
within the South African society of the plight of the underprivileged;
(ii) greater understanding that there is a need for improvement;
(iii) and actual participation by society in achieving the above goals.



The UN Charter

 
  The Charter of the United Nations is an
  outline of the goals and aspirations of the
  organisation. As UNA-SA, we try to uphold
  these goals through all of our activities.
