Creating a legacy of change through education and training

Because we believe that knowledge is empowerment

Training for local medical professionals is at the heart of everything we do. Empowerment and education for the people and professionals in the countries we work with is how we achieve sustainable change.

Surgical sub-specialty education and training for the medical professionals in the villages include:

  • Orthopedic training (ie. hip replacement)
  • Cataract treatment
  • Ultrasound

We train medical staff in many areas including wound care, blood pressure and blood sugar monitoring, and CPR for first responders. We also teach laypeople in the villages how to measure and interpret blood pressure.

Education and training for women, girls and children’s health has been another of our focus points. This training includes:

  • Partner violence prevention program
  • Improving perinatal training
  • High-risk labour and delivery program
  • International alarm/trauma course

In the wake of the Covid-19 global pandemic, Team Broken Earth was grounded at home. We did not stop our work. We continue to develop partnerships to utilize our special skill set, including relationships on the Labrador coast and in Canada North.

Education and training mission locations to date have included Haiti, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and right here at home in Canada North.


Over the last three years, Team Broken Earth has provided a high-risk labour and delivery training course as well as an intimate partner violence course in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Our course directly impacts the country’s goal of reducing maternal and infant death by providing quality instruction to the primary caregivers.
