Did you know that in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria is the leading cause of death for children under the age of 5, killing one child every 45 seconds and nearly 700,000 children per year?

While mostly under control elsewhere in the world, malaria is still pandemic in Africa, accounting for 40% of the continent's health expenditures and costing the continent upwards of $12 billion in lost productivity.

The Junior Chamber International has set a goal to raise $10 million and purchase 1 million life-saving bednets. This action will help the United Nations reach its Millenium Development Goal to have halted by 2015 and begun to reverse the incidence of malaria and other major diseases.
Just $10 covers the cost of a net, its distribution and educating recipients on its use.

As a member of JCI, I've decided to take action and have set a goal of raising $20,000 by 2015.

How am I going to do this? 

I started out by traveling around the world in 2010 and 2011 providing Wordfast training and raising awareness. Together with the help of more than 200 individuals, translation industry companies, profits from trainings, donations from Wordfast users and Wordfast LLC, and support from JCI members, we have raised nearly $10,000!
