• Completion and ongoing support of the Katoke Medical centre (6 bed ward) with its outreach programs.
  • Implementation of an effective anti-malaria education project in 14 villages around Katoke and distribution of approximately 20,000 mosquito nets reducing the annual incidence of malaria from 62% to 12%. Educating communities on malaria and the importance of using the nets, rather than just distributing nets, boosts the effectiveness of our program.
  • We have conducted an annual HIV/AIDS prevention program focusing on the education of youth in schools, nearby villages and the Katoke Teachers College.
  • We have seeded smaller programs such as road safety, sex education and nutrition.
  • We have introduced a dental preventative program (distribution of toothbrushes, demonstration on use of toothbrushes) in nearby villages. We have also equipped a local dental surgery within the Dispensary.
  • We have provided more than 500,000 meals to students and teachers each year since the secondary school began in 2009 and provided employment to more than 100 seasonal and full-time workers.
