Classes for Long-Term Health

Learning about germs
Learning about germs

Classes continue at three orphanages and for a local women’s group thanks to your support. In addition to classes about cholera prevention, we've also been about nutrition and, in a special class run jointing with EDV partner Global DIRT, women’s health.

The skills both the children and adults in this programme learn will not only help them become healthier in the short term, but learn improved health behaviors that will impact their lives for years to come. Our goal is to help those in the programme learn how to be more self-sufficient and avoid not just Cholera, but other dangerous illnesses like Typhoid and Malaria.

Rather than write the details of our activities, we’ve included a few of our favorite photos that we think really show what these classes and health checks are all about.

Thanks so much for making these classes, and the changes they’ll bring about in the lives of all those who attend them, possible.
