Who We are

Excerpts From Past

When the ideas that led to the foundation of GHEP was muted, it sounded like a pipe dream, but when the dreams materialized, it continues to amaze how the organization is working within the community changing lives and minds.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do. Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” Goethe

About GHEP

We’re a bunch of local people solving local problems: GHEP addresses all aspects of health and educational disparities affecting the most vulnerable individuals and populations in our communities, especially those that are historically known to experience disparities in health and education outcomes, namely the poor, underserved, women, children, minorities, and new residents.

We’re building foundations for the future: When we eliminate education and health inequalities in our local communities, we build solid foundations for educational achievement, individual and community empowerment, optimal health, poverty eradication, and sustainable human development not only for the present but for future generations. We’re passionate about eliminating health and education inequalities because regardless of who you are–white or black, male or female, rich or poor, local or abroad–inequalities are not good for any of us. And that’s why we believe that collectively, we can all work towards eliminating inequalities which are barring some members of our society from setting their hands on the key to a prosperous future and lives well-lived.
