NETwork Against Malaria

Mission:1) To raise money to purchase malaria nets for needy Africans to protect them from sickness and death. When children are not sick with malaria, they can attend more days of school. Parents have more time to work, and they spend less of their small income on malaria medication. 2) To ensure the nets are used correctly volunteers educate the bednet recipients about malaria, the benefits of bednets, and how to use nets. 3) To educate U.S. students about the burden of malaria in the world.

Programs

NETwork-NAM-raises money by collecting donations and selling jewelry made with Ugandan beads. Volunteers from U.S. schools, events, and clubs string beads to make jewelry at educational presentations made by NAM volunteers. To ensure recipients use nets, before distributions NAM volunteers talk on the radio and with children at schools, women's groups, community leaders about nets. At distributions, volunteers teach recipients about nets. Schools reinforce this information after distributions.
