Our logo was designed by Rwandan-Ugandan artist Collin Sekajugo.
Sekajugo explains that jerry cans are essential items for many families in Low-Income Countries. They are commonly used to store products such as cooking oil, gasoline, water and last but not least, medicine. Collin Sekajugo describes the jerry can as a representation of community, accessibility, inclusiveness and unity – perfectly embodying the aims of the Thanzi la Onse programme, promoting the Health of All.
The colours – red, yellow, black and green – combine the colours of the Malawian and Ugandan flags; the two countries in which Thanzi la Onse originated. The white cross, an internationally-recognised medical symbol, gives the logo universal significance.
