Road to Changes
Real change for us does not come as a once off gift, it comes as a series of stages until we have really affected a life.
OUR VISION, OBJECTIVES AND VALUES
To realize our vision the “A Road to Changes” programme of Utho Ngathi has the following key objectives:
We are on the road to changes. Our staff and volunteers work tirelessly to mobilise available resources and to create awareness and interest to help persons with disabilities become fulfilled and contributing members of society.
What has emerged - which so often does when potential is unleashed - are bright, hopeful persons who will grasp the slightest opportunities granted them with both hands. A little assistance, an opening of a door, and the life of not only the person with a disability but also the family and even the community they live in, is changed and brightened immeasurably.
A few of the specific achievements by Utho Ngathi to date include:
Governance and Registration
Utho Ngathi is a registered Section 21 Not–for-Profit Company in South Africa, as well as being fully registered with the Registrar of Societies in Zambia, operating in historically disadvantaged communities in southern Africa. Our organisation is tax exempted by the South African Revenue Services, as well as by the relevant authorities in Zambia. Utho Ngathi implements the guidelines on corporate governance as set out in the World Association of Non-governmental Organisations “Code of Ethics and Conduct for NGOs” document. At the operational level the organisation has prepared the necessary constitution and other legal documents to reflect these guidelines.
