Animal Protection is education to Humanity! Albert Schweitzer

At Animal Nepal, we believe in creating awareness amongst the young. On 9th June, 2017, we organized an educational programme for students at Future Stars High School, Jawalakhel, Lalitpur.

Future Stars High School Founder Manju Karki Lamichhane and Vice-principal Mrs. Binta Karki welcomed The Animal Nepal team warmly and guided us to the hall where about 130 students awaited for us in anticipation for what we were about to show them regarding welfare for our furry animals. AN Programme Manager Kapil Kafle described and showed them a short video about the work done by Animal Nepal in the areas of helping dogs, making lives of equines better and saving the Asian elephants. He shared some success stories about abandoned and sick dogs, when, given timely treatment along with love, made remarkable recovery. Similarly, Advocacy Officer Urvashi Rana spoke to the students about the five freedoms of animals and why it should not be violated.

Since animal welfare is an evolving concept in our country, our community and especially, the children need to be educated on this topic, as they are the future and will spread the word of welfare towards animals. We stressed on the fact that charity begins at home and how animals of all kinds enrich our lives and inspire our imagination. By caring for our pets, domesticated animals and respecting animals in the wild, will not only maintain balance in the eco-system, it was a sure shot way of showing kindness to all animals.

In this way, we have targeted most schools in Patan and plan to make our students and communities aware regarding our Animal Birth Control and Anti Rabies programme and the suffering of stray dogs in general. We aim to target more educational institutions and take our school education programme to a whole new level in the coming days. We were extremely pleased to see the interest and excitement amongst the students regarding our work. In 2017, school education programme will remain on our top priority list and to achieve this we plan to cover six major schools in one year inside Lalitpur.

We would thank to Future Stars High School’s teachers, staffs and students for giving us this opportunity to share our work; we are especially grateful for the support of Future Stars High School’s Founder, Manju Karki Lamichhanae and Vice Principal, Binita Karki.
