Water is Life: Fighting Malaria in Zambia
Description: Zambia is a landlocked southern African nation about the size of Texas, with an estimated 15 million people. The area was settled by Ngoni warriors who migrated north from South Africa after the Zulu wars in the early 19th century. Ngoni villages are built around a cattle enclosure called a kraal - made from tree limbs, stumps, sticks and thorn bushes, to keep out wild animals. Zambia has several large urban centers; but the vast majority is very rural; many villages can be reached only by dirt roads and thin footpaths. Zambians are intelligent, hard-working and peaceful people. Most villagers are farmers growing corn -- called maize, ground nuts and cassava. Malaria, once the leading killer in Zambia, is still a major cause of death among children under five years old. Many children and adults have malaria several times a year. The disease is a main reason Zambians miss work, further entrenching poverty and food insecurity by stealing farmers from fields, and harming education by keeping kids out of school.
