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.

OUR MISSION

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.

  1. Make a donation to HealthEd Connect on-line, or by mail.
    To donate by mail: Just send us your check along with a note specifying the name of the mother you wish to honor (see address above).

    NOTE: please specify Honored Mother/Woman as the Purpose of Gift
    THEN:
    return to this page and CLICK THIS LINK to enter the name of the person you wish to honor.
  2. Watch for the person's name to appear in the banner on this page
    (this may take a day or two, while notification of your donation is received).
  3. Tell the person you have honored about your gift in their name.
    Send an email message to your honoree, OR
    Print a beautiful color message to mail, OR
    Just honor them with your memories. (There have been so many in the past that honored loved ones who had died that we want to acknowledge this mode of giving.)
