Video - Printed mosquito nets for Uganda

Protect vulnerable children against malaria

We are thrilled to announce our new exciting partnership project "Printed mosquito nets for Uganda"!

The mosquito nets that we distribute are no ordinary mosquito nets. These are mosquito nets that have been improved and made more beautiful with a beautifully coloured print. “We all like different things. Watch how people dress. Different colours and different prints. And people take better care of things they like, ”says Bashir Nzabanita of Twiga Ventures in Uganda. If people can choose what they like, they will become more attached to it and take better care of it. That has been proven. The Malaria Consortium, an international non-profit organization specialized in the prevention, control and treatment of malaria in vulnerable populations, investigated the use of printed mosquito nets among 2,500 pregnant women in Uganda. The results show that printed mosquito nets were better used and maintained than regular mosquito nets. That is why the we opt for printed mosquito nets: these are more beautiful, are used better and longer, and thus offer better protection.

The Printed mosquito nets for Uganda Project is a partneship between the Dutch Malaria Foundation, Twiga Ventures Uganda, Care Plus Buy One Give One, and HP.
