Happy Holiday season from Broadleaf...
With your help in 2017, more than 550 kids in the Eastern Himalayas received a total of over 11,000 hours of education on topics from hygiene to gender equality to nutrition. More than 400 women and girls participated in their first-ever women’s health fair. And 675 families received emergency food relief during a government shutdown in the region.
We’re eager to leverage your generosity to expand our programs and services in the coming New Year. As 2017 draws to a close, we want to thank you for everything you’ve done to help unlock human potential through better health and education.
We hope you’ll join us once more in giving the gift of health – and we can’t wait to tell you about the progress we are making together.
Very best wishes for a happy and healthy new year.

Just read Nicholas Kristof 's annual "gifts with meaning" guide. His first recommendation, deworm a child. Check out Broadleaf's annual gift guide: http://www.broadleaf.org/b/deworming--cost-effective-and-high-impact
$125 and you can deworm all the kids in our entire program for a year

Water and health go hand in hand, and at Broadleaf it plays a central role in our efforts to build healthy, strong communities. Worldwide, 443 million school days are lost every year due to water borne illnesses. In India alone diarrhea causes 1,600 deaths per day, most often as a result of substandard water and sanitation habits.
Broadleaf uses its groundbreaking approach to directly combat these issues by teaching children about the importance of good sanitation practices, handwashing, and drinking clean safe water. Broadleaf also ensures that students can put their learning into practice by building latrines and water systems at our partner schools. As a result, the CHHIP program has resulted in a dramatic 50% decrease in the incidence of diarrhea in private Broadleaf partner schools.

International #WomensDay

Women and girls are disproportionately affected by the challenges that exist in the communities that we work in, but CHHIP’s health and personal development curriculum and health services are powerful tools for reducing the social and educational disparities faced by girls in rural India. Better health and sanitation practices improve girls’ school attendance and subsequent economic prospects. Additionally, CHHIP’s health curriculum improves the learning environment by reducing bullying and corporal punishment while promoting physical and mental health. These activities challenge norms of gender inequality by empowering girls to succeed in the classroom and encouraging boys to see their female classmates as valuable contributors to school and community.
Broadleaf Health and Education Alliance was recently awarded a grant by the Adventures For the Mind Foundation to expand its programs directed specifically at young girls in the communities we serve. This generous gift was granted to support the work and expansion of the Comprehensive Health and Hygiene Improvement Program (CHHIP). http://ow.ly/1dQE309I5D1 http://ow.ly/i/syDHa http://ow.ly/i/syDHo
