HealthEd Connect is responding to some of the most important issues and needs that impact the welfare of children and adults in communities that lack access to adequate healthcare and education. My husband and I lived in Zambia for a year and frequently visited some of the communities in which HealthEd Connect now works. It is inspiring to hear about and see the positive impact happening in these communities as local community healthcare workers and teachers are being trained by HealthEd Connect to respond to some of the most pressing needs in the community. Some of their initiatives include free of charge schooling and meals for orphaned children, home based care for people with AIDS, and providing education for the care giving of babies and monitoring their growth. This model encourages the empowerment of women and children, which is exactly the mission of HealthEd Connect.

I cannot say enough about HealthEd Connect! My daughter has been involved with Sherri and Jac for several years now and has gone to Zambia two different times. What they do for the people of Zambia who are less fortunate than most of us is remarkable. It touched my daughter is so many ways that her first trip brought about her career change. HealthEd Connect touches everyone who is involved whether that is on their end (they giving end) or the receiving end.

I have learned about HealthEd Connect from my granddaughter who took two separate trips to Zambia this year to support the program. The needs are many in this area of Africa, and are being met in many ways through the teaching that helps increase the skills of the adults and children in the village and through medical care that has shown a true loving and caring support system for many years. HealthEd is administered in an effective way that will continue to develop an independent way of life for these wonderful people that are so eager to learn and take care of their families.

I have loved this non profit for several years. Recently I was able to learn more about their programs while at the International Youth Forum in MO. They are doing such great things. I was happy to purchase a bracelet made by Andrea in Africa and enjoy helping out when I can.

I believe more of my funds I contribute really get used for the purposes I intended. I am included on a blog which allows me know what is happening with this organization. They use volunteers exceptional well to help with their mission and it help those persons to grow in understanding of how to give others hope.

HealthEd Connect successfully creates sustainable opportunities for impoverished areas in Zambia, Malawi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Nepal to improve community members standard of living and quality of life. I have witnessed first-hand the positive effects of HealthEd Connect's presence in three communities in Zambia. Last January, I shadowed the nonprofit and saw empowered women (and men) making incredible change in their communities. HealthEd Connect trains women in the communities to be Healthcare workers and entrepreneurs (that contribute funds to the greater community). Hundreds of orphans and vulnerable children attend the schools created by community members in conjunction with HealthEd Connect's support, as well as benefit from the school lunch program. With a special focus on educating women, they are making powerful strides toward breaking the cycle of poverty in the communities of Chipulukusu, Kasompe, and Zamtan. With intentional planning and expertise, this nonprofit is transforming the lives of many, including my own.
