Research shows that one of the most effective ways to stop superbugs in low- and middle-income countries is through education.
With that in mind, we’ve we’ve launched School-in-a-box – a way to lend a hand to existing projects who are doing great work… but are desperately lacking resources.
Our partner the Roll Back Antimicrobial Resistance Initiative already run three hugely successful ‘AMR clubs’ in schools in the Dodoma Region of Tanzania. Now they want to open more, to reach more children over a wider area.
To do this, though, they need more resources. Nothing fancy – they just need the sort of kit many of us take for granted: a laptop, projector, printer, and stationery. Basic, but transformative tools that’ll fit inside a big carboard box.
That’s where you come in.
We’re looking for teams of people to raise funds for a School-in-a-box – which will contain all the kit needed to set up a new club.
Could you and your friends and colleagues raise the £1k funds needed to pay for one box?
