Sailing for Nets

Nothing but nets

By taking part in JCI Regatta you will support JCINothingButNets, the global, grassroots UN charity campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa and transferred to humans by the malaria mosquito. To date, tens of thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the United Nations Foundation in 2006.


Every 45 seconds...

Malaria is one of the most serious global health issues. More than 200 million people each year are infected, and nearly one million of those die. Malaria is particularly devastating in Africa where the disease is a leading killer of children, accounting for twenty percent of all childhood deaths. Every 45 seconds a child in Africa dies from a malaria infection.


Donation JCI Regatta

Of each subscription about 20% of the participation costs will be donated to Nothing But Nets. 100% of this donation is used by the UN Foundation to purchase nets, distribute them to families, and provide education on the proper use of the net.
