- Where We Work
Partnerships are the cornerstone of WellShare’s work, and they start with involvement and ideas from the people we serve. Since 1979, we have been designing, implementing, and evaluating community-based programs here at home and around the world. We empower communities to improve and sustain their health by working closely with organizations, community members, and governmental agencies. With the support and guidance of these groups and individuals, our community-based partnerships have made a difference for thousands of women and children—both domestically and internationally. View a full list of our community partners. Below are some key partnerships we would like to highlight.
In Uganda, malaria kills 70,000 to 110,000 children under five years old each year and is a leading underlying root of poverty. In 2007, WellShare expanded its programs in Uganda through the President’s Malaria Initiative Malaria Communities Program. Read more.
Of every 1,000 children born in Tanzania, 112 will die before they reach the age of 5. Hoping to improve the outcomes of Tanzania’s youngest, WellShare and local partners created the Tanzania Child Survival project. Read more.
