Working with: CREW (Costa Rica Equine Welfare)
In order to properly teach children about the importance and impact of working animals in communities we must first have the tools in place to make these lessons accessible.
In Costa Rica, SPANA is working with partner organisation CREW to create a curriculum of lessons to deliver to children of primary school age at seven schools. Teachers will then be trained in how to deliver these lessons, and enough lessons will be put together to keep children engaged for much longer than the initial project duration.
Providing accessible, engaging and long term content to teach children about working animals is key to changing thoughts and feelings, and improving welfare for years to come.
