The GAIA NetGain project takes advantage of the existing village network of GAIA caregivers, already trained in health education and working in their villages to respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The caregivers educate people about malaria, its causes, how to prevent it, and the importance of getting prompt treatment for malaria-like symptoms. They teach them how to use bednets, how to repair, maintain, and re-treat them. Then they distribute the nets and check back periodically to assure that villagers continue to use them properly.

If a student does not have those tools (things as basic as pencils, erasable pens, scissors, calculators, binders and notebooks), they not only fall behind their peers, but also become stigmatized. Self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth all play vital roles in school performance. A new backpack may seem trivial, but the proud smiles on the faces of students receiving them helps to clue the rest of us in that they are almost as important as the school supplies themselves.
