Malawi has a shortage of veterinarians. When an animal gets sick, the livestock holder often does not know what to do. When the animal dies, an important source of manure, nutrition and income is lost. This is why we train Community Animal Health Workers. They can keep the animals within their own community healthy.
How we help
- We train motivated livestock holders to become CAHWs (Community Animal Health Workers)
- CAHWs educate livestock holders on housing, nutrition and health and treat animals
- CAHWs work together with the government to monitor animal diseases and establish vaccination programmes
- Because of their improved health, the production of each animal improves and the available nutrition is used effectively
- We actively work on strengthening the position of women by involving them in our projects
In addition, we set up different projects in Malawi. That is how we completed Livestock in Empowerment 2022 and are now working hard on our Rabies Vaccination Program. Other projects you will hear about later!
Voor 2023 is ons doel om minimaal 50.000 honden te vaccineren. Zo kunnen we in steeds meer gebieden de benodigde 70% vaccinatiegraad behalen om de overdracht van rabiës te stoppen.
The goal of this project was to help the people in Mzimba and Rumphi, districts in North-Malawi, create an improved productivity for livestock and an improved position for women, young people and their families.
