Spartan recognizes that education plays a central role in preparing children to be successful in life which impacts not only the child but our communities as a whole. We also seek out opportunities to promote awareness of mosquito control globally in order to have a lasting effect on individuals and communities.
Some Ways We Help Further Education
Supporting International English Education
In 2018, Spartan completed the My English School, a months-long project to build an English School in Laos. The school will give the graduating students opportunities for employment in jobs where speaking English is a requirement, such as the tourism industry (tourism is the largest industry in the country). Without opportunities such as these, many children grow up without means of income. Here, education changes a life.
Supporting Local Educational Institutions
Locally, Spartan supports educational institutions and activities including local aspiring athletes through contributions to the Lamar/Jones County 6U All Stars Soccer, the Sharon Booster Club, PCS Athletics, Oak Grove High School Boys Soccer, St. Patrick Varsity Baseball, and the USM Athletic Foundation.
Supporting Girl Scouts
Spartan coordinated with the Girl Scouts of Greater Mississippi Council to treat the two camp properties in the state. In Brandon, 98 acres of Camp Wahi were treated with Spartan Mosquito Eradicators, and in Wiggins, 67 acres of Camp Iti Kana. In addition to protecting hundreds of Girl Scouts and volunteers, the annual Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp is held at Camp Iti Kana. The Civitan Camp is a place where adults and children with disabilities can experience the joy of summer camp.
West Africa Initiative
At the beginning of 2020, Spartan Mosquito, a division of AC2T, was proud to announce a partnership alongside leaders of Togo with the intention of helping with education and mosquito eradication in a select region within their country. In Western Africa countries like Togo, the catastrophic disruption resulting from uncontrolled mosquito populations can interrupt a society in countless ways.
AC2T is also a proud supporter of the American Mosquito Control Association (AMCA) and the Entomological Society of America.

World Health Organization
While there are many health organizations worldwide, the one that is best known is the World Health Organization. The World Health Organization (WHO) is an agency of the U.N. concerned with the health and well-being of the world. WHO strives daily to fight substance abuse, promote nutrition and healthy lifestyles, and raise awareness about health-related issues. For years, WHO has been fighting to reduce mosquito populations in over 150 countries around the world. Spartan Mosquito will work directly with your health organization to plan and achieve its preventive mosquito control goals.
