Description/achievement of initiative
JCI (Junior Chamber International) commits to reaching our goal of raising US $10 million by 2015 to combat malaria through the JCI Nothing But Nets campaign in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. JCI members in 115 countries are raising awareness about malaria and raising funds for the purchase and distribution of nets, as well as working on the ground in Africa to assist national distributions. Members have raised more than US $800,000 to date. At the 2011 JCI Global Partnership Summit, members reaffirmed our dedication to advancing the MDGs with a firm commitment for every JCI National Organization to run at least one MDG-focused project in the next year.
