Review for Healthed Connect, Independence, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have seen several of Health Ed Connects programs in person in Zambia. The schools and programs there are very real, very active, and impact the lives of hundreds of children every single day. I have been in each of the three schools, observed the teachers and staff working, seen the meals served, and seen the excitement and hope instilled in the students there. I have walked with the volunteer health workers as they made visits to the homes of individuals they monitor and assist. The other programs in the Congo, Nepal, and Malawi also make significant impact on children and women each and every day. A contribution to this organization is put to work in programs with real and visible impact. In my opinion, you could not get a bigger more tangible positive result from your contribution than giving to this organization.

Review for Healthed Connect, Independence, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am very aware of the details of this not for profit. As an accounting professional, I am specifically aware of the high standard of operating procedures that Healthed Connect uses to manage it activities. All expenses, including travel expenses of the directors are reviewed by two Board members. We work very hard to follow the dollars spent in our foreign locations, particarily Africa. I can pledge that the dollars of the organization are being used to tremendous benefit of the women and children being served. The organization is open and transparent. If anyone would like to speak to any of the directors or board member, we are open to provide details of our work and how our money is being spent. We are very very proud of the amount of work actually done on the ground in our various locations. Schools have been built, meals are being served, community center has been built, health care workers are being trained and supported, women have generated family income, and children have been taught, loved and supported.

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

make it much bigger.

Rating: 5 stars  

Healthed Connect in my opinion, represents the best in what a non profit organization is intended to be. A defined mission has been created and everyone involved has personal interest in taking the actions necessary to accomplish that mission. Healthed Connect is successful because all of it volunteers are passionate about making a difference in their actions. Although small by national standards, the organization has gotten quick and large results in just the couple of years it has formally existed. We like to say that we are getting a big bang for the buck. The leadership and Board is completely volunteer. Therefore, with no large administrative salaries to support, a large amount of our dollars has been put into programs. As such, within just two years we have built and started three different schools in Zambia, provided support and training to on the ground health workers in several countries. We have established strong but efficient business practices.
