It’s been another action-packed month! The big news is that rabies looks to be included in the Standard 8 curriculum throughout India!!

Education

Thanks to our hardworking team on the ground, our education programmes are now reaching more children than ever. We’ve now educated more than three million children and we’re set to have an even bigger impact, thanks to the work that we have been conducting with national curriculum writers in Malawi and India. We will have more news for you over the next couple of months.

Ranchi

The teams have been starting work at 4am this month due to the immense heat – a complete contrast to the monsoons in Goa! Despite the weather, they still managed to get out into the community to vaccinate dogs!

Goa

The Goa teams haven’t let the monsoon rains slow them down, with 5,270 dogs vaccinated this month!! We’d like to thank the Government of Goa for their continued support and guidance with the project – it is a huge lift to the team to have Government support and we look forward to updating you as the campaigns continue to progress in the state.

Malawi

This year’s vaccination campaign is now in full swing and the team have been working tirelessly to vaccinate dogs in the rural communities around Blantyre.

Other news

We presented at the OIE conference in Kathmandu this month and received some brilliant feedback from the World Health Organisation on the talk. 

Our Uganda project has also just begun!! Our team and a group of international volunteers are vaccinating in the forest corridor outside Bwindi Impenetrable National Park – it’s set to be a good one!

We’re excited about everything that is coming up in July!

ROCK ON!
