This video is based on a group of five friends, united in an effort to rid their community of the mosquito vector. It focuses on informing primary school-aged children on methods of prevention and control of mosquito-borne diseases through environmentally friendly and sustainable methods. The intent is that children will become ‘mini mosquito inspectors’ who will take the message home and promote throughout their communities.
