Protecting 130,000 school children

Tanzania is one of the countries worst affected by malaria and the majority of the country is malaria endemic.

Approximately 200 boarding schools across Tanzania, where some of the poorest students in Tanzania are educated, are receiving nets to achieve blanket coverage. Boarding schools in Tanzania, unlike some in Western countries, are very poor. The nets are funded by Rotarians in Canada and the distribution is via a partnership between Rotary Tanzania and PSI Tanzania. There have been several phases of distribution starting in August 2008 and it is now nearing completion.
