It is actively identifying the “best of the best” technologies, services, products, and processes. This is the “high touch” portions of the EmeraldPlanet global movement featuring the “high technologies” through The Emerald Mini-Treks, while creating The Emerald Mall to match those inventing, creating, experimenting with, and manufacturing needed technologies. with those individuals and communities needing such technologies, services, products, and processes for sustainable, resilient, and adaptive living in closer harmony with natural surroundings..

WELCOME to join in this world-wide movement by watching The EmeraldPlanet TV programs, participating in planning for and joining in various The Emerald Mini-Treks, and linking your “best practices” to those in need on The Emerald Mall.

Program overview

SHINA, Inc. of Lanham, Maryland, USA and Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania helps the most vulnerable women and children in rural areas of Tanzania,  It also helps develop character and leadership among at-risk youth in the Washington, DC metro area. In Tanzania, SHINA, Inc. has programs that build communities by helping individuals. These programs focus upon impoverished women, people with disabilities, and K-12 school children.  Culturally, music is the heart of Tanzanian society and through its Health and Spirituality Program, SHINA, Inc.’s support of three choirs built community as well as expanding cultural understanding of and appreciation for traditional as well as classical Western music.

The “Women in Business Micro Grants Program” gathers women in 10-15 person cooperatives (co-ops) providing training and seed money for three years. Hundreds of women have been lifted out of poverty, stimulating the local economy, while increasing the health of their families and community through their co-op related businesses. The co-ops must pay a portion of their profit forward into the community. In addition to covering school fees for many children so that they can attend school, SHINA, Inc. is building two early learning centers where there were no pre-schools. Almost all of SHINA, Inc.’s projects are self-supporting and then after three years are turned over to the community.

SHINA, Inc. is successful because it: has volunteers who understand the culture of where the projects are located; provides just the necessary resources to accomplish the transparent goals and objectives; and has the flexibility to adapt to what it finds on the ground during annual visit around Tanzania. SHINA, Inc. is unique in that it invites all its donors to travel with its leaders to meet the people who were helped by donated funds. At its Metropolitan Washington, DC area office SHINA, Inc. accepts in-kind contributions such as medical equipment, wheel chairs, baby equipment and supplies, summer clothing, and other items needed by served communities. It has initiated an extensive in-country educational and research project to greatly reduce the incidents of malaria among the population and communities of Tanzania. 

It is estimated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) that a child dies from malaria every 60 seconds on the planet, one child in Africa dies every 30 seconds.  Globally, some one to three [1 – 3] million people die annually from malaria, 70% of these are children under five-years of age.  Major scientific research reports the “mosquito” is considered the world’s most dangerous animal.

The following concerns a patented and trademarked technology completely developed and manufactured in the United States.  The advanced technology is simple, low cost, extremely easy to maintain, and a proven health and live saving technology for Tanzanians through a collaborative non-profit project between SHINA, Inc., the EmeraldPlanet International Foundation, and Pulcra Chemicals “Social Solutions Charity”. The “KNOCK DEAD/KNOCK DOWN” Skintex® MR III mosquito blanket and shemaghs will kill mosquitoes and any blood-sucking insect which touches the fiber, while providing a “Halo” effect to protect users from insect bites, yet is totally safe for human beings, their pets, and livestock.

Citizens, community leaders, government officials, school administrators, faith communities, and international NGOs are expressing great interest in this mosquito and all blood-sucking vermin vector.  This specialty, one-of-a-kind personal protection delivery system, is ideal for areas with at-risk citizens, their family members, and local community leaders who are exposed to high incidents of malaria, yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, ZIKA, among other blood borne infections. The web site to preview the technologies are:  www.skintexmriii.com.

It has been said, “good ideas hide in plain sight”. Thus the collaborating non-profits are compelled to make this revolutionary “KNOCK DEAD/KNOCK DOWN” mosquito blankets and shemaghs available for Tanzanians specifically and billions of others around the globe.  By combining the “best of the best” mosquito elimination technology which is incorporated into one of the most used adult, family, and young children products, a blanket, along with the even more personal shemagh protection, the project can be providing a comprehensive solution to the dire needs of Tanzanian families, communities, internally displaced people (IDPs), disaster and conflict refugees, health clinics, K-12 students, and HIV/AIDS medical treatment centers around the country and the world.
