300 Mosquito Nets Project – Sumbawanga Region

OLET Founder & President Mrs.Olive Luena presents 300 Mosquito Nets to Br. Dominic, a representative from St. Placidus Mwimwa Primary School in Sumbawanga Region. The school started in 1998 aiming to provide education to children of the neighboring villages who could not attend school due to distance from their home to school, but due to large demand it was forced to become a boarding school for students who live far (it is now both a day and boarding school). Academically they are doing good but there are major setbacks. Despite other challenges the major problem that hinders the achievement of the desired goal is Malaria Epidemic. The Statistics during the wet season show that every week 7-10 students miss classes due to Malaria Sickness, thus affecting class attendance and performance of many students
