Badiliko in a few lines?


The word Badililko means Transformation/Change in the Swahili language.


● Our organization Badiliko is about equipping people and organisations with self-awareness, insight and flexibility to develop greater emotional and psychological resilience in the face of challenge and change.

● Badiliko offers standard and customised coaching and learning solutions to help promoting mental well-being within occupational settings both at individual and collective level.

● We want to contribute to the collective effort and call to action to create a better world by actively supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goal number 3 (good health and well-being) with our activities. We want to partner with like- minded people and organisations.

“As the founder of Badiliko, my personal motivation to join MHE is that I believe in the scalable power of the collective: If we all keep working at it together: regardless of roles: mental health practitioners, policy makers, influencers, specialist or academics we can get there faster. Like the saying goes: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.“ (Lao Tzu) . The first step has been taken now we have to keep going.”

What are your main activities? 


Our coaching and training solutions are aimed at strengthening self development & self-leadership in individuals, teams and organisations with the result of greater levels of stress resistance, resilience, positivity and fulfilment.

These are delivered in workshop face to face sessions but can be done virtually. (These can but don’t have to include physical wellbeing activities such as relaxation, nutrition & exercising techniques). We like to help addressing three essential elements for stress reduction and improving mental health within our coaching and training solutions:


What we do:


Co-create a learning or coaching solution tailored to the specific mental well-being or occupational health requirement with the client.


Support individuals & groups to raise awareness and insights into personal strengths & possible barriers to achieving greater mental well being.


Develop training programs targeted at both adult population in occupational settings and youth populations via universities or high schools.


We do this with the help of: 




What are your priorities? 


Our philosophy and approach is summarized in our tagline:  Lead from within. Inspire Others.Transform the World which lies at the core of Badiliko’s logo and ‘raison d’etre’.



Lead from within: We educate individuals to improve their ability to develop greater levels of self-sufficiency & coping mechanisms in the face of personal, work and life challenges and as a result to feel stronger from the inside out.


Inspire Others: Once individuals and teams are better equipped at dealing with adversity in a sustainable way, whether in occupational settings or in general life or whether individuals are performing a formal occupational (leadership) role alongside their other roles as parents, friends, spouses, team members, the result is twofold:


-Improvement of personal well-being and self-empowerment.

-Role modelling this for others and supporting others to do so.


Transform the World: This means we can obtain a ‘multiplier effect’ which can support the direct and indirect scaling of higher resistance to stress, increase of self-confidence, decrease of anxiety, increase greater mental well being for all and ultimately obtain a more fulfilled society.

Our key priority is to be a valuable learning partner in the area of self leadership techniques and self- empowerment to reduce stress and increase (mental) well-being and fulfilment.


● Our first goal is to be of service individuals, teams and organisations in the private or public sector to improve both personal mental and organisational occupational health and fulfilment. We believe in the ancient saying: “ Mens sana in corpore sano ” (physical and mental well-being go hand in hand).


● Our second goal is to ‘reach out to the collective beyond’ being a learning enabler in the virtual or physical classroom in form of social entrepreneurship.


Our ambition is to help society at large including those who might be more vulnerable to stress, anxiety, sense of isolation (for example youth, people in stressful occupational settings or involuntarily out of work or those who might going through times of occupational or other life transitions).

We feel that one small step towards this goal can that of ‘democratizing mental well- being’ via social media’. ‘Raising awareness’ on how to become more proactive to tackle perceived issues related to stress, disengagement, lack of fulfillment and positivity in form of inspirational quotes, images, blogs and reminders is one way we of doing this.
