Primary school recipients in Katulikirie

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!
