Teaching children to care
SPANA believes the only way to ensure a better future for working animals is to educate children about animal welfare at an early age. Our extensive education programme in Morocco will teach more than 20,000 children this year. ● Children visit all of SPANA’s centres where they take part in animal welfare classroom activities and get to tour the clinics to see working animals being treated. They also get the chance to experience handling rabbits and guineas pigs which helps to develop positive attitudes and empathy towards animals. ● 12,000 children and their teachers visit the SPANA education programme at Sidi Bou Ghaba nature reserve to learn about animals in their natural environment. ● Later this year a new educational bus will tour schools in rural areas. ● SPANA has a riding centre in Casablanca which gives children with disabilities the opportunity to take part in riding activities.
