The United Nations Association of South Africa (UNASA) is the South African chapter of the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA). We promote the goals and principles of the UN and its agencies through community engagement and work with civil society and government in South Africa. UNASA defines itself as the "people's movement of the United Nations" and our work builds upon the opening statement of the UN Charter “We the Peoples of the United Nations…” to bring the UN to the people and the people to the UN.
There are UNASA chapters in universities across the country. We work in partnership with other organisations to promote sustainable development, human rights, and socio-economic progress in South Africa. The national office is based in Cape Town.
