We’re buying a £2 mosquito net for every child in our link schools in Uganda.
And we need your help.
Donate now.

Sub-Saharan Africa continues to carry a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden. In 2015, the region was home to 89% of malaria cases and 91% of malaria deaths.

Why are we buying them?

  • 42 Ugandan children die every day from malaria. That’s 15,300 entirely preventable child deaths every year (source)
  • A 2014 study found that 64% of Ugandan school-aged children carrry the malaria parasite (source)
  • We want to protect the children in our link schools.

Malaria’s effect on life outcomes

  • Malaria recurs, which means children can be absent repeatedly from school
  • Significant gaps in their education can mean that children have NO CHANCE to make it out of poverty
  • Children who survive an episode of cerebral malaria may be left with impaired understanding, speech, language and/or motor skills.

What we’re asking for

  • Each mozzie net we want to buy costs £2. Just £2! Will you help us reach our target of 1,000 nets?
  • You might choose to sponsor 1, 5, 10 or even a whopping 50 mozzie nets.
  • Maybe you could raise the money as a class or school?
