How We Do It

Our Approach

Build Local-capacity for Long-term Sustainability

The best way to drive lasting change is to partner with local individuals, NGOs, and governments to increase their capacity to meet their community’s needs. We want to partner with individuals, from frontline nurses and doctors to biomedical engineers, and equip them with tools and training so that they can continue impacting communities long after our involvement ends.

Innovative & Locally-
appropriate Solutions

Every project is met with an innovative mindset, understanding that each program requires tailored interventions. We work with our local colleagues to assess the health landscape, identify barriers, and collaborate to solve big and often overlooked challenges. 

The Power of
Partnerships

Big challenges require many partners — local and international NGOs, health facilities, regional & national government, foundations, international agencies — working together for a common purpose. We embrace these partnerships, knowing each partner brings unique value. Together, we achieve transformative impact.

Monitoring & Evaluation
(M&E)

We design key metrics, gather quantitative and qualitative data, and evaluate the impact of programs. This information allows us to be flexible and adaptable problem-solvers that can react quickly to challenges and provide evidence of impact.

Always Remember
“The One”

In everything we do, we always remember “the one”— the one baby receiving oxygen therapy treatment, the one mother receiving a safe and effective surgery, the one orphan now living with a warm, adopted family. While we always aim for transformative impact, ultimately, we want to improve the livelihoods of individual people.
