Project Mosquito Nets

by Power of Love Foundation Vetted since 2010 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Project of the Month Site Visit Verified


Help us provide 10,000 long lasting insecticide treated nets, education on prevention of malaria and proper use and maintenance of nets to children and families vulnerable to malaria in Zambia. Each net costs a mere $5, lasts 2-3 years, and can sleep four young children or two adults. You can save lives for pennies per day. Sleeping under a net leads to improved health, higher school attendance, and strengthens the community. To date more than 26,000 nets have been provided in Zambia and Kenya.

In Africa, about 300,000 children die needlessly every year from malaria which is both preventable & curable. In Zambia, a large percentage (30-50%) of the population is infected by malaria due to the high incidence of HIV (weakens the immune system), water logging (prefect breeding ground for mosquitoes) and poor sanitation. Malaria can be fatal for young children, and pregnant women who are HIV+. In addition, children who contract malaria suffer from its effects over their entire lifetime.


According to the WHO, sleeping under a net is the most cost effective way to prevent malaria. Our goal is to prevent malaria by the provision of 10,000 long lasting insecticide treated nets that will benefit 20,000 adults or 40,000 children. Nets will be provided to the most vulnerable populations: HIV+ children & adults, pregnant women, older adults, & people infected with TB. Education on prevention of malaria and use and maintenance of nets will also be provided. Impact will be reported.

Long-Term Impact

This ongoing program has led to a reduction in the incidence of malaria, and better health for all especially, young children, expecting mothers, and people living with HIV - groups most vulnerable to malaria. As the health of the women improves they can take better care of their families, and healthier children leads to a higher school attendance. With better knowledge about prevention, malaria deaths can be reduced to zero. In the long term the community will be stronger and more self-reliant.
