Nothing But Nets Cameroon is a community programme of Junior Chamber International(JCI) Cameroon with the main aim of raising money for insecticide-treated mosquito nets.


Background[edit]

Since 2008 Junior Chamber International (JCI) has partnered with United Nations Foundation (UNF) to help with its Nothing But Nets project whose goal is to buy and distribute long-lasting insecticide-treated mosquito nets to prevent malaria deaths and reduce the severity of infections. JCI`s mission in this partnership is to raise money which will then be sent to the UNF to buy and distribute the nets.JCI achieves this goal through activities in its National Organisation Members (NOMs)or national branches.[[1]]

Jaycees in Cameroon are organising events to acquire funds that will be sent to JCI world. This fundraising activity is refered to as JCI Cameroon Nothing But Nets or Nothing But Nets cameroon.[2]
