Grade Level

9–12th Grades
Olathe North High School
Olathe, KS

High school students, as part of a learning expedition focused on world health and infectious disease, engaged in a case study of malaria and efforts to prevent it in the developing world. They were struck by the fact that a vital strategy to combat the spread of the disease is simple and inexpensive: providing mosquito nets to families.

The students led an awareness and fundraising campaign to raise money to provide nets to families. Part of that campaign involved speaking and giving lessons in local elementary schools to build a student movement to promote charity for this cause.

This illustrated activity book was part of the instructional materials provided to elementary students: the story of how a small contribution can make a world of difference to an African village—an engaging comic book with a serious and important message.
