As educators for many years, we truly appreciate the many things HealthEd Connect does to help people in other parts of the world learn and grow. We have been, and will continue to be contributors to support what they are so passionately doing.

This charitable provides high quality assistance, helps individuals improve the quality of their lives through health and education and their communities with even the smallest of donations. It has very little administration cost and very little overhead costs so the donations have a greater impact than most organizations of this type. The structure is to empower the individuals and not make them dependent of the organization. It is one of the best in its field!!!!

The co- founders of HealthEd Connect, Jac and Sherri Kirkpatrick, have dedicated their efforts toward helping and educating communities in ways they can improve their living conditions, both in the area of health issues, general living issues and learning how to read, for both old and young.

Their news- letters provide exciting information of the activities provided by HealthEd Connect to the communities they are serving. A number of people have recognized the value of this organization and have volunteered their time to also serve these communities.

Because Health Ed Connect has recognizable value, local leaders of these communities have also reached out to support HealthEd Connect.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I think HealthEd Connect is valuable as it currently exists.

I have been very impressed with the skills that HealthEd Connect is providing in Zambia such as: educating the children, and providing learning tools for them, sewing, cooking, training workers who already live in the area being served by HealthEd Connect. The directors, through their email updates, have kept me aware of how blessed I am to live in the United States and how blessed others are due to the efforts of such people as Sherri and Jac. It is amazing to see pictures and stories of women who are learning health care skills so they can provide the needed care for their children and their communities and to see pictures of children sharing their new skills. that surround them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I think they are doing a great job. Sherri and Jac have the professional skills to make this outreach a successful. endeavor.

The leadership of Healthed Connect are veterans of the global non-profit sector and experts at truly making a difference in the world. Their efforts are highly spoken of at Graceland University where I work. After seeing their annual report detaling the communities they have helped inspire to invest in the education of their children, I decided to make a monthly donation.

It's not near enough, but it is motivating to me to see how far they stretch every dollar. What sets Healthed Connect apart is that the local community is so invested in the success of the schools the community builds and the appreciation for the health care training the local women receive.

Long story short - this is not an outside group coming in and taking over, or deciding what is best. The local community members themselves are heavily invested in the success of each initiative.

HealthEd Connect, a small organization has the amazing ability to impact a great many lives. The nimbleness of a small group of volunteers that can move quickly and are deeply connected within the communities where they work. An extraordinary example is the instant response following the earthquake in Nepal where thousands received food and were assisted with housing. HealthEd Connect assisted remote communities badly stuck by the earthquake others couldn't reach. I am proud to be a part of such an extraordinary organization.

As a previous board member and on ongoing donor; I am so proud of the absolute efficiency and heroic efforts to respond quickly on the ground to the Nepal disaster. The GAP program was just reinforced for me hearing Nobel Prize Winner "Malala" speak in Santa Barbara for girls education. I also know as a healthcare professional; their outcome results linking health and education for body,minds and spirits is a winner!

HealthEd Connect puts their money where their mouth is. All individuals in this nonprofit still go, work, and live among the people they serve. I am so impressed by this small orginaztion and what they have been able to do for education. Three villages now have schools and my university students who are training to be teachers here in the US can go work and see first hand how valuable and coveted an education is in Africa. It is amazing work. I have experienced well run and poorly run nonprofits in my line of work and this is one of the best.

Due to their established presence and connections in Nepal, HealthEd Connect was one of the first on the ground with aid and support for earthquake victims. They provided food and shelter to hundreds in remote villages, and continue to do so. Kudos to Jac, Sherri, and the whole team.
