CHHIP Expands into Four New Schools
Broadleaf Health and Education Alliance is thrilled to announce that for the 2014 school year, which has just begun, we are expanding our reach from 7 to 11 primary schools in three partner communities! The additional schools, all of which have been monitored for the last year as part of our control group for assessing CHHIP’s impact, will extend the program’s direct reach to over 500 children.

All of these children will participate in a year-long health education curriculum, receive basic health interventions such as deworming tablets, and will be screened for health problems that require referral to the public health system.

Great story about empowering girls in West Bengal.

We are happy to celebrate women across the globe this International Women’s Day!  The theme this year is #InspringChange - we strive to inspire the girls in our schools everyday.
Broadleaf believes that education is the foundation of change.  If we can empower our girls through education, we can create agents of change and improve communities for the better! Learn more
