Our Humane Education programme is incredibly important to LSPCA as it's one of our fundamental projects which promotes and encourages animal welfare in the younger generation, with the five main approaches including:
- Rabies Education
- School Art Projects
- Public Awareness Campaigns
- Animal Kindness Clubs
- Humane Education Pilot
World Animal Network (WAN), Intercultural Centre for Research in Education (INCRE) and RSPCA International support LSPCA’s education team who are currently piloting a Humane Education curriculum in Malawi schools. The delivery of lessons to 160 pupils in urban and rural schools aims to foster happiness and wellbeing around 3 thematic areas: people, animals and nature.
The LSPCA is working with the Ministry of Education to include Humane Education in Malawi’s national primary curriculum, to deliver lessons within the mainstream primary education curriculum to every child in Malawi by 2020.
