African veterinary faculties are battling to adequately educate their veterinary students due to the lack of resources. South African veterinary students aim to empower other students by delivering much need resources to African universities, communities and sanctuaries during a 7 week expedition, creating a ripple effect in the struggle that is conservation.
Compared to a privileged veterinary faculty such as the University of Pretoria, other African universities have minimal resources. This affects these students who struggle to receive adequate education to become quality veterinarians. Conservation is a serious problem in Africa, largely due to a lack of environmental awareness in local communities. Our challenge is to both empower African veterinarians and support the conservation of animals, by delivering much-needed resources and services.
Our aim is to supply much-needed resources and equipment to African universities, communities, schools & conservation sanctuaries. Through your support we will enable universities to produce veterinarians of higher quality for years to come, creating a ripple effect on the protection & conservation of African animals across the continent. We are also confident that our efforts to provide education to local communities & schools will raise the level of environmental awareness across the continent
This biennial project has been ongoing since 1993 with the aim to empower 8 of our fellow veterinary universities in other African countries and to build sustainable international relations between veterinarians. As textbooks become outdated and new equipment becomes available, it stays a worthy and necessary cause. We believe this project will improve veterinary knowledge and skills in all the countries we endeavour to help, with the goal of improving human-animal relationships.
