Post-Millennial kids are taking action on causes dear to their hearts. Very aware of major global issues, such as the recession, and extremely familiar with technological trends, the still-materialistic teens are mobilizing support for philanthropic issues via social media, raising money on Facebook, and even creating their own organizations.

"The number of kids creating their own organizations and taking action for causes they care about is skyrocketing," said Nancy Lublin, New York-based CEO of DoSomething.org, a non-profit that helps get youths involved in philanthropy.

Ancient Malaria Killer Gains Spotlight(Link)

JustMeans
2011

George Clooney's recent contraction of malaria together with the publicity talents of Malaria No More (MNM) have put the disease in the spotlight. It causes 1 to 3 million deaths per year, with ninety percent in Africa. Of these, most are young children. With some relatively simple solutions and development of a vaccine, the ancient disease can be eliminated.

Oh, To Win the War on Wily Malaria(Link)

JustMeans
2011

April 25 is the third annual World Malaria Day, as approved at the 60th World Health Assemby in March 2007. Prior to this, it was Africa Malaria Day. In 2008, the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership launched the Global Malaria Action Plan to tackle the complex and elusive goal of eradicating malaria on this earth.

Just weeks ago, four African leaders were honored by the African Leaders Malaria Alliance for their role in malaria control and treatment. Heads of state in Guinea, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania banned artemisinin-based monotherapies, which cause drug resistance to recommended malaria treatments, and removed tariffs on goods used to fight malaria.

According to the RBM Partnership - founded in 1998 by WHO, UNICEF, UNDP and the World Bank to provide a coordinated global response to the disease - 5 countries are responsible for 50% of global deaths and 47% of malaria cases -- Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Ethiopia and Tanzania. In sub-Saharan Africa, there is generally a high transmission of the plasmodium falciparum parasite, transmitted by the female Anopheles mosquito.
