MOSQUITO NET TO THE 600 POOREST FAMILIES IN NEPAL

by Nepal Village Foundation, UK Vetted since 2013

Summary

This project will distribute and install 1,200 treated mosquito nets to the 600 poorest families in three malaria high risk villages where, currently we are working. Economic loss, particularly to the poorest is severe when the malaria mosquito infects them. This also affects the children's health and progress in their studies. Consequently, this project will prevent the families from economic loss and improve the school attendance of girls, we support through the Girls' Education Project.

Challenge

The three villages where, currently we are working are in malaria high risk area and it is extremely difficult for the poorest to afford any protection against malaria. Economic loss, particularly to the poorest is severe when the malaria mosquito infects them. This also affects the children's health and progress in their studies.

Solution

This project will raise awareness about the prevention of malaria, distribute and install 1,200 treated mosquito nets to the 600 poorest families in three village panchayats where, currently we are working. The mosquito net will last for five years. So, the 600 families will be less likely to get infected by malaria mosquito for five years.

Long-Term Impact

Nepal Village Foundation aims to improve the wellbeing of Dalits and the poorest of the poor in rural villages of Nepal by enabling access to education and learning. As, this project will prevent the families from economic loss and improve the school attendance of girls, we support through the Girls' Education Project. We believe that this project will contribute significantly towards achieving the above aims and reduce the risk of death.
