SC Johnson Empowers Female Entrepreneurs, Fights Malaria in Rwanda with EKOCENTERS
EKOCENTER Community Kiosks Offer Education and Resources
Filling a Gap: Disease Prevention while Developing EntrepreneursWhile some people think of insect repellents as merely a way to avoid pesky mosquitoes, in parts of the world, mosquitoes can carry life-threatening diseases like malaria.
A Long-Standing Commitment to Social Responsibility and Community Health
Our efforts with BOP communities are not new. For more than a decade, we’ve worked to help improve the lives of BOP families and help minimize mosquito-borne disease.
A six-year initiative in Rwanda focused on helping pyrethrum farming families increase production and quality of their crops in an effort to boost incomes and raise standards of living.
Other efforts focus on studying mosquito-borne disease prevention, for example in a collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
With new and continuing initiatives like the EKOCENTERS, we continually renew our commitment to strengthening communities and making life better for families around the globe.
