The ScreenSaver Foundation
With the help of its Country Director for Senegal, Cherif Ndiaye, the ScreenSaver Foundation has brought its innovative low-cost, cut-to-fit screen windows and doors to help enclose huts and dwellings in the village of Croisement-Peulh.
With the support and involvement of Croisement-Peulh's elders and children alike, the ScreenSaver team spent the day installing the windows, educating people on how to maintain the screens, and sharing valuable information about malaria prevention.
