Incorporating Malaria Education at Fun Events!

Peace Corps Volunteers recently gathered in the district capital of Koumpentoum to put on the first ever district-wide English Leadership Camp. During the three day event, students practiced their English and participated in a number of environmental and health activities including a causerie about malaria and making neem lotion. The students loved covering their hands in the gooey goodness of the homemade insect repellent while spouting out facts about malaria. Just one example of how PCVs are making malaria education easy and fun!
