because we care

"The simple act of caring is heroic."
- Edward Albert

About "because we care"

Why

At UV we take our responsibility to society very seriously. As coaches, every day we listen to individuals and their families, trying to plough through these crisis-ridden times.  The enormity of the COVID crisis and the impact that it has had on people has been heartbreaking. People live in constant fear for the health of their near and dear ones, constant fear of losing jobs owing to the economic instability not to mention constant fear of survival with all the bad tidings around, in the news, on social media etc. 

What

‘Because We Care’ is a CSR initiative where volunteer coaches from among our trained & certified coach community would be available to help people through complimentary coaching. We want to help people get back control of their lives. With the abundance of coaches that has passed through the UV annals, we are well poised to do so and it is a moral responsibility that we accept gratefully. Mental health and emotional health are something we understand and what better than redirecting our energies into something which can benefit our society in the form of Volunteer Coaches.

How

Our 40+ volunteer coaches from multiple nationalities, located in different countries and speaking various different languages are listed here with their details along with a brief profile. Interested people can reach out directly to these coaches through their email address. There will be no charges for these volunteer coaching sessions. All these coaches have volunteered to spare their time and do this for free. Our intent here is to provide a support system and a platform for easy access to those seeking help and guidance by having a ready group of voluntary coaches. Confidentiality is guaranteed and all discussion between them and coach will be 100% confidential and only the coach and they will have access to this discussion.
