Fr. Michael Christopher Mujule said, “The girls of St. Margaret Mary School have pride now. The girls who live in the village and do not sleep at the school will bring the nets home and tell their parents….This has made a big difference in the village.” (view small | med | large | orig)

Ugandan Students

Ugandan Students
On average, a Ugandan student misses 60 days of school due to malaria. Often, they fall behind in classes and are forced to drop out, condemned to the cycle of poverty. (view small | med | large | orig)

A Village of Recipients Celebrates their Bednets
Because bednets are insecticide treated, one bednet protects the three children under the net and reduces the liklihood mosquitoes will enter the home and bite anyone else. When bednets are heavily used in one area, malaria transmission is reduced by 93%. This happens because as the number of malaria cases decreases, so do the number of mosquitoe carriers.

...I sincerely thank you for this great struggle..

...I sincerely thank you for this great struggle..
Greetings from Stella Matutina Secondary School. Stella Matutina is a girls' secondary school in Katulikire Holy Family Parish... Uganda. A few days ago we received bed nets from your organisation through our parish priest Rev. Fr. Francis Banura. 315 girls( between the ages of 12-19yrs) and 27 staff members received the bed nets. This effort will go along way in the fight against malaria. We believe as these girls are protected, they in turn will become the ambassodors of this noble struggle you are making. More so when they are healthy they will concentrate more in their studies. On behalf of the school, I sincerely thank you for this great struggle and promise you our prayers.God bless you abundantly. Sr. Josephine Acan Head teacher Stella Matutina Secondary School (view small | med | large | orig)
