HealthEd Connect has impacted (and continues to impact) so many lives. I was able to track the HealthEd Connect team on their latest trip to Zambia and Malawi through a Garmin satellite communicator. It was really neat to follow them during their trip. I was even able to see the schools in Zambia via satellite imaging. Amazing what HealthEd Connect has done!
Wow! What a great organization. I enjoyed learning about the work HealthEd Connect is doing in Zambia and Malawi through my sister who recently went on a trip with HealthEd Connect. I look forward to supporting these amazing people in their future endeavors.
HealthEd Connect is an amazing organization. I was able to experience the impact they are making first hand on my recent trip to Zambia and Malawi. I am amazed by the wonderful things they have done over seas, and am proud to be a HealthEd Connect supporter!
I am so proud to be a sustaining donor for HealthEd Connect because of the strength and impact of its programs — in particular, the data-driven methodologies for addressing health needs in the communities it serves. I also appreciate how well-informed HealthEd Connect keeps me about allocation of funds across the different programs.
I have been honored to serve on the HealthEd Connect board for many years now. I know intimately how wisely and carefully funds are used to support responsible partnerships with communities in Africa and Nepal in a locally rooted approach to effect sustainable change.
Always focused on helping people to help themselves, especially empowering women. Great organization.
Judy and I were introduced to HealthEd Connect six or seven years ago and have been very impressed with the life-saving and life-enhancing programs that they have created and developed in partnership with the local professionals and volunteers in the countries where they work in Southern Africa and Nepal. They initially focused on local health workers who deliver and monitor the growth and development of babies and children. They then progressed to fill the great need for educating those children, many of whom are orphans. We never cease to be amazed at what they can do with so little seed money. Their work and programs have even motivated the local tribal chiefs to donate land and local resources to assist in the development of more schools and clinics. We never tire of watching which local needs they will tackle next.

We have been regular HealthEd Connect donors for 5 years and have been very impressed with the many ways they enhance the health and education in Nepal and the African countries where they serve those in great need. They train the local people to do the work on the ground and the organization provides the supplies that are necessary. We will continue to support them in any way we can.
Amazing organization with a powerful impact -- empowering women, children and communities with health education and education services.
HealthEd Connect lives out its mission daily because of the empowerment of individuals across the globe that this organization has facilitated. Women and children in Africa and Nepal have better lives because of HealthEd Connect!
HealthEd Connect truly lives out its mission of empowering women and children through evidence-based health, education, and advocacy programs. They have created a sense of volunteerism in the three different communities I visited in Zambia in 2013. For the past 20+ years, Sherri has been training community health workers to look after the most vulnerable in their community. In that same caring sense, those community health workers came together a few years ago and said we need to not only take care of the sick among us, but also the children. They decided they needed schools. Thus three community schools were created. Having visited, observed, and taught in these schools I can, without a doubt, say that these schools are changing lives! Everything they do is intentionally planned and culturally relevant to the people they are working WITH.
HealthEd Connect is the best! Countless lives have been saved; children and young people are being educated; and entire communities are changed for the better. Future leaders are being nurtured in the most positive ways.
Thrilled to see the lives changed by the incredible work done by the people of this organization! Vision, passion, and perseverance truly DO make a positive difference in the world.
This is really a great non-profit. With only two paid positions, most of the money goes to helping the women, children and communities. They provide health education to enable more children to grow to adulthood. The volunteer workers in the various communities where it is established have been recognized by their governments.
I am a farmer in the great food basket of Iowa. I was so please to see how instructors @ Health Ed were teaching the value and use of greens by tire gardens. The students are able to harvest much needed additional food and at the same time receive a first hand demonstration how it is produced.
Thank You L. Green
I have known about this organization since 2009, when my daughter volunteered to help with a project in Africa. Her enthusiasm for the work they do, really impacted me. As I learn even more about the good works they do in many, many areas, I am more and more impressed. Great leadership focused on great local service and relationships.
This organization continues to expand and provide effective programs to the women and children it serves. Programs include elementary schools with free lunches, birthing centers, volunteer health workers, orphan grief programs, and girls scholarships to high school among others. Programs are ongoing and expanding in Zambia, the Congo, Malawi, and Nepal. It is a very well run organization that works efficiently and focuses on the programs it deliveries.
HealthEd Connect is a small nonprofit making a BIG impact! Through the evidence-based health, education, and advocacy programs that HealthEd Connect is a part of, thousands of lives are lifted and improved. By helping to make education accessible to the most vulnerable, and training community health workers to support local needs, a spark is lit to share what has been learned with others. This makes a positive impact for the whole community! That's the kind of work HealthEd Connect is a part of!
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.
This is an amazing non-profit that I have worked and traveled with. I had an incredible experience and am very impressed with their care model and how they run their organization. The founders are great people with big hearts, and the work they do is truly changing not only individual lives but whole communities. I could not give a higher recommendation for this organization.
I have been with HealthEd Connect as a volunteer, donor and office staff for four years. I have personally seen the positive effects of an organization that is successful because of our zeal for human life. At HealthEd Connect we are a family of volunteers and donors making a big impact in the lives we partner with in the Copperbelt of Zambia, Africa and Nepal, India.
Lifesaving medical and educational training has been made available to countless village women and men through our professional volunteers that have provided the ground training needed to empower communities for better lives. The success of the programs is simply this, the deep appreciation for human life and a passion for a future of hope.
From our local volunteers and donors to our Zambian and Nepali village health care volunteers on the ground, this team works! And, the transformation can't be missed!

My opportunity to travel with Health Ed connect this summer was an incredible blessing both in the relationships and perspectives that I gained. I have never fully realized how critical that Health Ed connect's focuses on education for all and personal relationships really are to individuals and communities. I am inspired and awed by HEC's passion for accessible education for orphans and the ways that they empower others to strive towards that goal. And I am also touched by their kindness and intentionality with every single person they meet along their journey, whether health worker, taxi driver, airport employee, or anything else. My travels have reminded me to never take for granted a trip to the library, the zoo, a museum, or my free public high school education. I am inspired by their efforts to open up some doors to accessing information to orphans, some of the most vulnerable children in Zambia.
This nonprofit is doing such amazing work with women, children, and orphans in Africa. The health care, maternity care, and education they provide makes such a difference in so many lives in areas where the need is very great. The workers are well-trained, caring, compassionate, and dedicated. I'm honored to support this excellent organization.
I had the incredible privilege of traveling with this group this summer. Never before have I seen a group of people create such a large impact. I witnessed firsthand the effects HealthEd Connect has had on their communities in Zambia. They are extremely hands on and involved in all the work that gets done. The founders are even known by their first names by those in the communities. One thing that i find sets them apart is that all of their employees in their Zambian schools are Zambian. This means they are not only helping the students in these areas but the adults as well. The health workers they train are vital to their communities. I struggle to express the total pride I have in knowing these people and to stress how much I truly believe in this group and the work they are doing. If I had the opportunity of giving them more than five stars, I would.
