Now I can say to parents who get the nets:

Now I can say to parents who get the nets:
"Now I can say to parents who get the nets: You have the nets. You can now go to work and earn money. You will not need to spend money on malaria treatment for your children. You will not have to stay home away from work in order to take care of your sick children. You can save money use it for buying food and go to work to earn more money. Your children will not get sick due to malaria by mosqito bites. The money saved from not going to hospitals may now be used to pay school fees for the children and to improve on income generating home projects. You can work at home or away from home and thus get money to take your family out of the cycle of poverty. This has made a big difference in the village." - Michael Christopher Mugisa Mujule (view small | med | large | orig)

Malaria Bednets Promote Education

Malaria Bednets Promote Education
Uganda has a free but under utilized educational system. Often parents will not allow children to attend school because as subsistance farmers they rely on the children's help. However, because NETwork distributes through schools, parents are motivated to send their children to schools. This furthers their education and betters their life. (view small | med | large | orig)
