PRE-EMBLEM: We the teachers of Ghana, having witnessed daily, the scourge of the malaria epidemic in our classrooms; seeing our students stay home sick for many days from the malaria; seeing our children die everyday from this disease; seeing our students lethargic and unable to learn because they are too sick from the malaria; do resolve to form this organization, Teachers Against Malaria Epidemic (TAME) to band together to work in partnership with others to tame and wipe out malaria from our communities and our country.


  • Serve as an advocacy group, to obtain malaria fighting drugs and medications, insecticides, supplies, equipment, treated mosquito nets to distribute in our communities;
  • Ensure that every child and family that needs a bed net gets one to use by going to the homes of our school children to install the nets and to make sure they are used properly;
  • Educate our children and their families about malaria, how to prevent and treat it;
  • Ensure mosquito free environment by organizing our students and school communities to engage in periodic environmental clean ups to eliminate the breeding grounds of the malaria carry mosquitoes.
