Mission of Malaria NIMBY
To run experiments in Kara, Togo; testing strategies to stop malaria carrying mosquitoes. When an experiment works, we will work with the local government to implement successful ideas in the village of Kara. We believe that sustainable anti-malaria strategies make the life of Kara residents simpler.
We do not give long list of things for Kara residents to do, instead we will give list of things not to do. We do not make work for Kara, residents, we make their life better without malaria.
List of Experiments in Queue:
1. Melting plastic bags with Solar Oven - Plastic melts at 266 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Water will not work because boil at to low of temperature.
The small plastic bags stop water flowing, that creates pools of water for mosquito breeding grounds. Presently they are burned, we hope to melt them down to a very compact piece of plastic. With the dream of making this plastic into handles for tools.
2. Buying plastic trash by the pound:
Making it profitable for neighbors to clean up the plastic bags. This is math problem, we need to find out how much money it takes to pay to clean the neighborhood by buying plastic bags.
3. Signs - Burn your trash here, so we can concentrate the trash in one location so easier to burn.
4. Plastic screens for Window and Doors business started, see if profitable.
