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.

Help Ivan stay healthy and stay in school!

Ivan
Ivan

Ivan is a 3-year-old boy whose parents have encourged him to enter school early.  He's too young for school, but his parents are hoping that extra time in school will help him escape the cycle of poverty.  They believe education is the key for him to have a better life.  Such beliefs can be difficult to find in Katulikire where most adults are resettled refugees and internally displaced persons.  Growing up in war torn areas, they did not have the opportunity to benefit from education.  They do not always keep their kids in school.


Ivan will be different.  Ivan will be the future of Katulikire and our impact on the village.  He's in school. Now he just needs to stay healthy.  Please help Ivan! 

 

Thank you for your interest, kindness and generosity!

Children at Diima Primary school.
Children at Diima Primary school.

Over the next 4 weeks, we will distribute 5000 nets to school going Ugandan children.  I will send reports from the field!  These distributions will bring our total to over 20,000 beneficiaries. I will update you with photos and stories of the recipients.  Thank you for what you have done to help our organization.  We know that we are changing lives in Uganda, and we couldn't do it without you.

 

For our efforts, we are one of 5 finalists in our category for the Classy Awards which are San Diego the first weekend in May.  It has been called the Oscar's for Nonprofit organizations.  We are honored by this recognition and the opportunity to attend. Watch for Madelyn, Mary Claire, and Maura and NETwork's recognition at the Classy Awards!

Conflict in Africa

It is difficult to read international news without hearing about the current conflict in South Sudan.  The refugees fleeing the conflict risk their lives to travel to neighboring Uganda.  Per the Ugandan newspapers, the Sudanese refugees are even coming to Kiryandongo.  As we have talked about in previous Project Reports the growth of the area that NETwork Against Malaria serves primarily occurred due to internal refugees and refugees from surrounding countries coming to Kiryandongo.  As the refugee population continues to grow, it makes it ever more imperative that we bolster our work in this community ensuring to help the most vulnerable children.  

I will be traveling to Kiryandongo district in the next few months, and I will be sure to update you on NETwork Against Malaria's work.
