HealthEd Connect offers unique person-centered empowerment to women and AIDS orphans/vulnerable children of Zambia through community schools, physical healthcare, and emotional support of volunteer community health workers. Training is also offered free in the villages of other developing countries like Malawi, Nepal, and the Congo. Hundreds of babies and mothers are alive today because of the trainings guided by HealthEd Connect's volunteer staff, yet provided to these volunteer community health workers in each area by their own leaders. The dedication of the villagers involved is incredible--hundreds of miles walked to deliver a baby or share a simple nutritional solution to save little ones' lives is unimaginable in the US tradition. What a blessing!
HealthEd Connect is committed to making a Big difference with Small overhead. Everyone involved is eager to play a role in sustainable development through a participatory model. HealthEd Connect's global impact is impressive and exciting-- volunteers from many countries come together to empower women and children with health initiatives and improved education.
HealthEd Connect changed my life. I am so thankful that I got to be included in the life-changing work that HealthEd Connect does not only for their target group in Africa, but also all the volunteers who are included in the work. I have worked with numerous non-profits throughout the years, but I am convinced that HealthEd Connect has it figured out on how to create the world that I want to live in.
