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.

Yabwengi Primary School

Meet our students!
Meet our students!

In August, NETwork Against Malaria donated nets to 1,022 students at Yabwengi Primary School changing the lives of these students and their siblings as up to three children can sleep under 1 net.  We have learned that after we donate NETs to a school, the enrollment increases, absences decrease. We sincerely appreciate your support.  We could not do it without you.  We are preparing to distribute nets to Diima Primary School, population 1,286. We need additional support to make this possible!

Both schools are part of Katulikirie parish which is overseen by one of our volunteers.  Before distributions, during, and after distributions we educate the children about malaria, the benefits of mosquito nets, and the benefits of education.  This process has begun at Diima Primary School until our distribution next week.  We need about $1000 more in order to complete our goal for October.  We greatly appreciate your support.  We know that NETwork is changing lives.

In 2011, I first traveled on bumpy roads and dirt paths not found on maps to meet with children in Katulikirie schools who had received our nets.  Knowing the children who have received our nets makes my mission so much more personal.  Since I left, we have distributed nets to more than 10,000 of these children.  Many of the children who I met have received our nets since I left, but several more wait. More than 30,000 children attend the 52 schools overseen by Francis, and we intend to protect all of them against malaria.  We plan to protect another 2,000 children before I return to Uganda in April of 2014, and we plan to distribute additional nets while I am there.  We really need your help!  We are creating a new line of fashion jewelry designed by our artistic interns! Be on the lookout for this jewelry, and please consider donating to help my friends in Katulikirie!

Hey all!


I hope that all is well as you prepare for summer vacation. The rainy season in Uganda just ended, the roads in the rural villages are passable, malaria is in full-swing, and we would like to conduct one more distribution before the children leave for the summer.  Francis, the Ugandan volunteer who oversees the 52 schools where we distribute has asked if we could give to: Diima Primary School (total population 1,286), Nanda Primary School (total Population 1,079)  and Yabwengi Primary School (total Population 1,022) for a total of 3387 children. The total cost of this distribution is $13,427. We have made about $3,000 since our initial request.  We greatly appreciate all who have so generously contributed.  We are still about $7427 short.

Francis and his students are waiting to hear from us.  This would be the first time we would have to say "no" to Francis and his students in Uganda. If you have any funds to contribute-- ideas or suggestions of ways to fundraise, we would greatly appreciate them. We are selling jewelry: http://www.networkagainstmalaria.org/#!shop-now/c24ib and dolls: http://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/gifts-for-good/detail.html?projectGift.id=139
 
No amount is too small.  Every bit helps!
 
Thanks for all of the work that you do.  I look forward to hearing from you.
 
Sincerely,

Margaret
