HEAL International (Health, Education and Leadership) is an Edmonton-based, non-denominational organization responding to local priorities in Uganda. HEAL is involved in several projects which build on local strengths and provide opportunities for community development through education, health initiatives and youth leadership.

Our Mandate

HEAL International was conceived from a vision* of vibrant, healthy communities that:

  • provides support to meet the basic needs of children, youth and families.
  • promotes inclusion to enable all members to participate actively in social, economic, cultural and political life.
  • promotes opportunities for the lifelong acquisition of knowledge and skills by all members.

* from “Reclaiming Our Humanity”, Sherri Torjman, Caledon Institute of Social Policy, December, 2001.

Our Partner

We have long-standing relationships with the communities we work with.  We work with established and trusted partners in Uganda, such as YES (Youth Encouragement Services) Uganda, a well-established Ugandan NGO that has been helping orphaned children and vulnerable families since 1996.   Other partners include health and education departments at various levels of local government.
