WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Education & health for all
Inspired by a life-changing event, Project 3580 was established in 2008 in order to reduce childhood mortality from malaria, and develop educational opportunities for all.
REDUCING MALARIA DEATHS
One of our goals is to reduce the 3580 child deaths from malaria in Kissitown Displaced people’s camp. By purchasing and distributing mosquito nets, the numbers of childhood deaths continue to fall rapidly.
IMPROVING EDUCATION FOR ALL
One of the key goals for Project 3580 is to provide an education to the hundreds of children on the camp, which had previously been denied them due to poor buildings and lack of resources. The Project has now built and refurbished 10 classrooms, increasing the numbers on role from 135 to just over 1000 today. Currently we are building a fifth block, which will provide 3 more classrooms for a further 180 students. Resources for the classrooms are provided by the camp carpenter, and by the exporting of three containers thus far laden with over 120 tonnes of school and community resources.
