It’s simple — our guiding values mirror our commitment to developing sustainable community-based programs that improve the health of women and children around the world. They are our compass, the whats, whys, and hows of our operations.

 While these values are critical to the way we carry out our mission, they continue to evolve as we learn new things about the strength of our organization and those we serve.



WellShare strives for sustainability, in hopes that program benefits continue after WellShare’s direct long term involvement.


WellShare believes that all of its programs must be accountable, transparent, and implemented with honesty and integrity.

Cultural Engagement

WellShare recognizes that all people exist within cultures that influence their perspectives on health.


WellShare values expanded access to health care, using proven, cost-effective, low-tech strategies that bring lifesaving services and education to those in greatest need.



WellShare harnesses strategic partnerships involving communities, local and international institutions, academic institutions, and similar organizations in all aspects of: program design, implementation, and evaluation. WellShare focuses on issues that address “felt” community needs in order to ensure that attention is directed to those issues of greatest importance to communities.

Monitoring and Evaluation

WellShare utilizes state-of-the-art monitoring and evaluation systems in our programs in order to assess the impact of our work and to share “lessons learned” with communities and peer organizations.

Mutual Learning

WellShare programs foster a team approach to public health and we realize that while we can offer technical assistance to communities. We, in turn, continue to learn and grow from our mutual experiences.
