Challenge

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.

Solution

Our aim is to supply much-needed resources, education 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.

Long-Term Impact

This biannual project has been happening for the last 30 years since 1993. Eight South African veterinary students, along with the help of people all over the world, aim to empower eight 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 As textbooks become outdated and new equipment becomes available, it stays a worthy and necessary cause.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.
