Funda Nenja Grant Report
Funda Nenja, an AKI grant recipient, works in the community of Mpophomeni in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands of South Africa, to improve the quality of life of both township children and their dogs. Funda Nenja uses the concept of ‘learning with a dog,’ which incorporates animal welfare and the development of young minds. This is Funda Nenja's report about how they used the AKI grant.
Report for October, November, December 2018
With the help of the Animal-Kind International’s grant, Funda Nenja was able to supply 30 dog houses to the dogs in the community of Mpophomeni, for the months of October, November and the first week of December 2018.
Without your donation, we would not have been able to do this and we are extremely grateful for your support.
Please see below some of the photos of the dog houses being taken home.
Our DOG SCHOOL attracts over 100 learners who attend weekly activities and education sessions, during school term. The dog school is our central point from where we provide veterinary services, sterilisation and rabies clinics and teach animal welfare.
An extension of the project is the SCHOOL EDUCATION PROGRAMME. Our facilitators are equipped to deliver life skills lessons to develop primary school learners as well as to provide education on animal and environmental welfare.
Children, caregivers, parents and extended family benefit from our FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAMME by accessing services provided by our Social Worker.
