Mosquitoes Suck Tour by Naomi Francois Prov RGD
Every 45 seconds a child in Africa dies of malaria. This entirely preventable disease kills upwards of one million people each year and affects nearly half of our world’s population. The Mosquitoes Suck Tour pairs hard-hitting statistics with entertaining content to teach Canadian elementary and high school students about malaria, international development issues and the role students can play in making the world a better place.

Schools where the show was performed each experienced enhanced social justice participation on the part of their students. Those efforts include the formation of malaria-related social justice groups (60% of schools) and/or working toward major school-wide fundraising efforts planned for next year (100% of schools), to joining the fight to help those affected by malaria by purchasing insecticide treated bed nets through the Spread the Net Foundation.
