Rithvik Balakrishnan

Location Boustane Diaw, Senegal 
Date:
23 Sep 2009

My name is Rithvik Balakrishnan, a Peace Corps Volunteer working with public health in rural Senegal and one of my projects concerns malaria prevention. The Senegalese government is handing out mosquito nets to all vulnerable groups, primarily children under 5 and pregnant women; we are targeting everybody else. Though on the open market nets cost up to $10, here they only cost $2. Since Senegalese generally share beds, this means that for the cost of a Starbucks frappacino, you can have a significant impact on multiple peoples' lives.    more >>

100% of the money received through this page, linked pages, and any other funds directed to us offline and indicated to be for the same project, will buy LLINs for PC Senegal's distribution.
