Uganics Repellents sell organic mosquito repellent soap in rural Uganda at the same price as ordinary soap through a Social Business Model. Malaria remains one of today’s major global health challenges. It perpetuates slow socio-economic development and poverty. More than two-thirds of malaria deaths are children below 5, with approximately 16 million cases reported annually only in Uganda. The rural population lacks awareness & financial capacity to purchase protective measures such as repellents that they would easily use without significant behavioural changes.
Soap is an everyday product that even extremely poor families in Africa use daily.
