Unity Village is a community of about 2000 people, located at the mouth of the Mahaica River, about 20 miles east of Georgetown. Lancaster Village, immediately to the south, has a much smaller population. Fishing and farming are the main industries in the area, with the Mahaica River providing both water and rich soil for farming. The Mahaica Hospital, which inludes Guyana's only leper asylum, is also close by.
This community has produced several famous individuals, including: West Indies Test cricketers Colin Croft and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, former Guyana Cricket Board president Chetram Singh and former president of Guyana Bharrat Jagdeo. Guyana cricketers the Arjune brothers also come from this community.
In 2012 Shivnarine Chanderpaul rehabilitated the Unity ground. The pitch was re-laid, outfield mowed and levelled and the pavilion was rebuilt. The pavilion was named the Chetram Singh Stand, in honour of the former Guyana Cricket Board president.
