100 Million
Well-thy Days

We are driven by uncompromising compassion and dream of adding 100 million "well-thy" days to the lives of the most marginalized by 2030.

Our aim is to reinvent systems that work for all. Our multidisciplinary teams do three things well -
1. Demonstrate scalable, cost effective and sustainable models in partnership with communities
2. Support partners to reach impact and
3. Draw the threads from action research into evidence, learning and action.

Our agenda is to change the way wellbeing pathways are achieved, starting with primary healthcare and tackling social determinants that direct how we experience everyday wellbeing.

We are spurred ahead by the values we abide by - values, which are the nucleus of our existence - L.I.V.E - expanding to Leadership, Innovation, Vitality and Expertise. We thrive at intersections to power the connections which make well-being real and meaningful for the most marginalized.
