Having celebrated the milestone of educating TWO MILLION children at our flagship projects in Malawi and Goa last year, we know the importance of education in rabies elimination campaigns. It really can save lives. Now with your help, we'd like to ensure the childen at risk of rabies in our proof-of-concept project sites also receive these lifesaving lessons.

How many children will you save?

It costs just 20p to educate a child about rabies, providing them with vital konowledge on what rabies is, how to prevent dog bites and what actions to take if they are bitten. This means it costs as little as £10 to educate a class of 50 children in one of the global rabies hotspots.

Please help us raise £4,000 to ensure 20,000 children receive these lifesaving lessons! This will allow us to run lessons at our projects in Tanzania, Uganda and Ghana, train local community health officers to spread the message and run classes on rabies prevention, and deliver education outreach into more youth groups and community groups. 

Every lesson will be lifesaving!

It's easier than ever to donate and help save a child's life. You can visit our Justgiving page, donate on our website, text EDUCATE followed by your chosen amount to 70085, or even donate through our new Facebook Fundraiser!

On behalf of our education teams, the communities in which we work and most importantly, the children who will know how to stay safe from rabies, we thank you in advance for your generosity! Because of you, these children will know about this deadly disease and how to stay protected!
