Malaria is one of today’s major global health challenges and has been associated with slow socio-economic development and poverty. In Uganda, children below five years are the most affected with malaria. According to the Ministry of Health, currently 90% of 100,000 recorded malaria deaths in Uganda are children, especially from rural areas. The majority of rural communities are not aware of the causes of malaria none of the preventive measures available.
We envision a malaria free world. Our big idea is to utilize existing habits to introduce a solution that can truly create impact starting at the core of the problem. Our social business model enables us to economically sustainably provide cross-financed affordable organic mosquito repellent soap and malaria sensitization to rural communities through high-margin sales to resorts and tourists.
