Under the net

Malaria kills someone every 30 seconds, usually a child under five years old. Malaria is preventable and curable which is why Porridge and Pens is supplying mosquito nets to orphanages and schools in Kumasi Ghana. 

In 2012 and 2018, Porridge and Pens trustee Laura Collins caught malaria on her trips to Ghana. Laura was fortunate enough to have the funds for her treatment – £2.50.

Because prevention is better than cure, for £20 Porridge and Pens can buy a good quality, pop up mosquito net that’s sprayed with insect pesticides and guaranteed to last for 10 years. 

Porridge and Pens has supplied the All Nations Orphanage with  mosquito nets which has had a huge impact with far fewer children catching malaria. We now want to supply 130 pop up nets to the children of the Brightlingsea School – are you able to help us?

Five of our Girl Power students return to school this month to complete their final year of school, whether at junior or senior level.

The length of the equipment list needed to study certain courses can vary considerably. We want to give Girl Power students the resources to study the subjects they need for their career path and not have to choose their course based on their limited finances.
Just £20 a month pays towards a place on Girl Power which covers school and exam fees, uniforms, books and equipment as well as many other benefits. If you would like to help a girl achieve her potential please get in touch with us.
