Eradicate Malaria in Africa and other water borne diseases | Water borne diseases in Africa are manageable preventable.

Malaria is caused by single-cell parasitic protozoa Plasmodium; transmitted to humans via the bite of the female Anopheles mosquito. Parasites multiply in the liver attacking red blood cells. Other infections caused by mosquitoes include denge fever, yellow fever and trypanosomiasis.

Other water borne diseases in Africa include bacterial and protozoa diarrhea, hepatitis A, and typhoid fever.

We work with Kenya's communities through advocacy and training to alleviate Malaria and other water borne diseases as Malaria is a number one killer in Africa.

Once we assist communities acquire water, we mobilize social workers to coach the same communities on safe water practices and hygeine.

To counter the spread of malaria, we encourage behaviour change, indoor spraying and applications with mosquito repellants like aerosols and mosquito coils and covering beds at night with mosquito nets.

Behaviour change is about how communities use water at their dispossal and includes use of water filters, boiling water for drinking and treatment of drinking water with chemicals.


Our inputs to eradicate Malaria are inclined towards:

  • Sensitizing communities through awareness and training- we will hold training sessions with communities and schools.
  • Distribution of bed nets for use at night targeting most prevalent areas in Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania.
  • Spraying stagnant waters with anti mosquito chemicals
  • Distribution of mosquito repellents like aerosols, mosquito coils, and application smearing jellies, at families levels and schools.
  • Conducting regular research in communities to find solutions for eradication and control mechanisms.

Major challenges to counter malaria are mainly lack of education awareness and finances in most African communities. This is where we come in and assist with awareness and resources inputs.

Partner with us through support of resources, donations for mosquito nets, mosquito repellants and nets to eliminate malaria in the East african region. Your donations will build partneships with the communities to help those that are hurting.
