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.
