What NETwork Is Doing
Network Against Malaria exists to raise awareness of the plight of Malaria in Uganda and to raise funds for malaria prevention/relief, particularly through the use of long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets. In addition, NETwork Against Malaria provides community education on health and wellness to halt the new cases of malaria and to create a healthy living and learning environment.
In the United States:
NETwork Against Malaria is operated by members of local chapters with guidance and approval from the national NETwork Against Malaria organization. Local chapters facilitate creative and interactive opportunities for education and fundraising within their own community. NETwork Against Malaria partners with schools, churches, Girls and Boys Scout organizations, youth groups, local charities, shops, and individuals interested in enabling people in Uganda. Activities include presentations, fundraising, and jewelry making. Groups often create their own unique projects such as all-school penny wars and jewelry sales.
NETwork Against Malaria provides community education on health and wellness for the people of the Hoima Region in Uganda. Those aiding NETwork Against Malaria purchase, distribute, and educate recepients about the proper use of long-lasting insecticide-treated malaria nets. These dedicated people ensure that the Ugandan community members understand and are able to use malaria nets.
