Welcome to The MENTOR Initiative, a discrete and agile humanitarian organisation
purpose built to relieve human suffering from tropical diseases.

We act in some of the world’s most austere and vulnerable communities, who are often devastated and forgotten.
Regardless of race, creed or nationality, MENTOR strives to deliver disease control to populations at greatest risk of suffering and death. Our first and last considerations are the needs of the people we serve.

The MENTOR Initiative saves lives in emergencies through tropical disease control and then stays to help people recover from crisis with dignity, working side by side with communities, health workers and health authorities to leave a lasting impact.
