The Work We Fund

Funded projects
Men's Health Partners
"We work closely with our global men's health partners to ensure collaboration, transparency and accountability for every project we fund. We monitor this through report cards which detail what we seek to achieve, key measures and the impact." - Owen Sharp, CEO
Prostate Cancer
"Together with the brightest minds in research, we aim to achieve significant breakthroughs in the hope of beating prostate cancer. Our disruptive funding approach identifies revolutionary ways to accelerate health outcomes by creating strong, global collaborative teams." Dr. Colleen Nelson, Global Scientific Chair.
Men's Health
"One Mo can help change the face of men’s health through the powerful conversations created globally during Movember. Men have the chance to confidently discuss men’s health with people around them, resulting in men taking action early, helping change and save lives." Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs
Mental health and suicide prevention
“We’re alarmed by the increasing number of men who take their own lives around the world. We are working to ensure all men and boys look after their mental health and are comfortable to reach out to others for support when they’re struggling.” 
Craig Martin, Global Director - Mental Health & Suicide Prevention programs
Testicular Cancer
“Despite being the 2nd most common cancer in young men, testicular cancer is often a forgotten cancer due to early detection and treatment. Our projects look at underinvested areas such as improving access to healthcare services and treatment options for relapse” Paul Villanti, Executive Director, Programs.

About the project

  • This project comprises a series of land-based mental health programs for boys and men in collaboration with Indigenous partners and international circumpolar partners.  Land-based programs combine Indigenous knowledge with therapeutic or health-promoting interventions in a wilderness setting, often involving activities related to the land, such as food harvesting and backcountry safety training.
  • The project team will develop, implement and evaluate six mental health programs in six northern Indigenous communities and engage 500 participants from three populations: school-age boys; male youth at high risk for mental health problems, including suicide, those in the justice and/or child welfare systems; and male youth with mental health or substance misuse problems.
