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.

Review for Healthed Connect, Independence, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
