Volunteer: Education Committee Posted on Friday, 8 July 2016

They say that ignorance is the root cause of the problem. At CARA we aim to provide as much information as we can for animal welfare. We dream of a nation that will treat animals with compassion. For this dream to come true, we have the Education committee spreading out the word.

The team coordinates with local schools to provide valuable information to students about responsible pet ownership.

We have a program designed around two cartoon characters, Caloy and Sara, who the children can really relate to.

They also aim to educate the general public, local government offices and village associations about animal welfare, compassion towards animals and make them aware of the implementation of the Animal Welfare Act.
