Earlier this year, Elena Bonometti, was  featured on an episode of System Catalysts, sharing Tostan’s approach to wellbeing and our experiences with community partners.

In conversation with Jeffrey Walker, philanthropist and co-host, Elena highlighted Tostan’s work around the Community Empowerment Program, creating spaces in  communities  in Africa to have non-judgmental and inclusive open dialogue on their vision of wellbeing.

“There is a psychological reactance in telling people what to do. And so Tostan was really coming from a place of respect with the information, with no judgment, with no imposition, with no agenda,” she said.
