Msasa Small Grant Project Update

Like their fellow Rotarians, the Rotary Club of Msasa aims to see the elimination of malaria by 2025. The Club was chartered in 1995 and was notable both for its young membership and as the first club in Zimbabwe to induct female members. 

With the start of its small grant project, the club is taking steps in the right direction. The project will educate the community on malaria prevention and increase the usage of malaria prevention interventions by 95 percent. This grant funds the work of the Msasa Club from September to October 2021 with the larger goals of contributing and supporting malaria elimination by 2025.  

To reach this goal, the Rotary club of Msasa is conducting monthly household visits with 40 Village Health Workers (VHWs). By visiting households, they want to ensure that communities are knowledgeable and understand the importance of malaria prevention thereby reducing malaria transmission in the communities.  

In addition to community outreach, this grant will ensure that the malaria kits are available to the club and community, record all malaria cases tested, and assess staff and programming to identify gaps in education or resources.
