2019 Holiday image 2

This Holiday Season, honor your family and friends with a gift that transforms the lives of women and children across the globe. For over two decades, families have received the ultimate gift of life through volunteer community health workers trained by HealthEd Connect. Your gift will empower those who empower others!

To make a gift online, click the “Donate Now” button. If your gift is in honor of a special someone, we will mail a holiday card to the honoree on your behalf.* Or, you may print this holiday card at home, or save the image to share via email, notifying the honoree of your gift to HealthEd Connect in their name.

(If the card prints as a full-size page and you would prefer a smaller version, make sure that you deselect "Fit to page" when you go to print.)

Some empowering gifts to consider:

$25 supplies materials to make 50 reusable sanitary pads so girls won't miss a week of school each month

$50 makes 332 nutritious lunches for orphans and vulnerable children at HealthEd Connect community schools

$200 provides a volunteer health worker with a development award for an educational endeavor

$700 supplies three school clubs (sports, choir, etc) with equipment for healthy play

$1,000 provides a scholarship to earn a nursing degree

You make the season merry and bright! Thank you for your support!

*We will be able to mail holiday cards up to December 23. After this date, holiday cards will be mailed December 26-31. If needed, please print a card for your honoree from this site.

Mirriam, "The Boss"OUR BOSS

Mirriam Is Who We Work For!

Mirriam had only to gaze up at us with her big brown eyes and we knew our lives would never be the same.  We met her when she was two years old, HIV positive, and facing an uncertain future.  She’s not unlike the other 12 million AIDS orphans in SubSahara Africa.

Mirriam’s now our ‘boss’.   If you’d like to meet her, click on ‘The Boss’ and see if you’d like to work for her too.


Helping People Is What We Do!

HealthEd Connect builds on a solid foundation of 20 years of experience with volunteer Community Health Workers who are directly involved with the families and special needs in their villages. Many of these villages are now facing incredible challenges as the number of orphaned children, primarily due to HIV/AIDS, has grown dramatically and the typical surviving caregiver is an aging grandmother who has lost both her husband and children. Going forward, HealthEd Connect will remain flexible and adaptive by connecting villagers and their leaders to expanding visions of possibilities, targeted training, and access to resources.
