East Africa: Advancing Animal Welfare with our new Training Material

IGAD Training Material

With our new training materials, we are advancing animal welfare at markets and transport in East Africa. Part of our new training package is a half-hour training video that addresses animal welfare issues and highlights solutions. This is accompanied by animal welfare flyers, posters and banners that will be used primarily in East Africa's animal markets and in the training of veterinarians and animal welfare inspectors.

We are pleased with the successful collaboration with the IGAD countries (regional organization of eight countries in Northeast Africa) during the creation of the material. Our training material brings the region another step closer to better protection of its animals. We will continue to follow the development.
