Education changes everything...
Students in the rural Himalayas come from families making about $2/day. Typical schools lack basic infrastructure such as running water, electricity, and toilets.
1 out of every 2 of students in control schools are infected with intestinal parasites, 40% suffer from iron deficiency anemia, and many are undiagnosed with mental illness, chronic illness and development delay– all of these issues result in massive absenteeism in school.
Our organization exists to challenge the status quo that exists in global development. While there is no lack of good intentions, we reject the notion that good intentions are good enough. Broadleaf's keystone program is called the Community Health and Hygiene Improvement Program or as we call it, CHHIP.
Delivered by school health activists working within primary schools, CHHIP breaks down the barriers that exist between our communities and the healthcare system.
Our goal is to create programs that leverage the tremendous human talent that exists in our partner communities, that use solutions and methods that yield data driven results, and that can be easily replicated.
