About the Rotary STOP MALARIA project
An international collaboration
The ROTARY STOP MALARIA project is a collaboration between Rotary club Midden Betuwe-Valburg, together with Rotary club Muyenga and Rotary club Kiwatule in Kampala, Uganda. Together we aim to have every Rotarian in the club donate at least 1 printed net for a child in Uganda. We do this in collaboration with the UK-based Malaria Consortium Foundation with African headquarters in Kampala, with the Ministry of Health of Uganda, and the company Twiga Ventures, which is also based in Kampala and prints images on nets.
What's the plan?
Basically the idea is that Ugandan Rotarians will visit schools in the north of Uganda (where the most malaria occurs) and have children select their favourite image from an image book. These will then be printed on the nets, and once donations have been received to cover a whole school, nets will be printed and delivered to the schools. In this way, school after school will be served.
Any Rotary club for which funds for an average of 1 net per member is received will be shown on a website in the colour ‘green’, to show participation… and of course what I would like to know is whether your club is also willing to support this unique project in Uganda.
It will only cost € 6 or US$ 7.50 per Rotarian to have a child in Uganda sleep under your net with its preferred print for a full three years. (In other words, 1 printed bednet = € 6 or US$ 7.50 )
