Building the capacity of students in Animal Welfare

Liberia doesn’t have a veterinary school. Together with our partner, WTS/WTG Vets United Programme, we are empowering animal science students and instructors of Lofa County Community College and Cuttington University in animal welfare and health programme through theoretical and regular hand on field practice. The programme builds the capacity of the students in animal welfare and basic veterinary skills and knowledge. 25 university students have graduated from the programme and over 80 students from the two institutions of higher learning are still undergoing the programme.

Welttierschutzstiftung (WTS) is a charitable foundation, established in 2015 by Welttierschutzgesellschaft e.V. The foundation promotes animal welfare worldwide. The main focus of its work lies on improving animal welfare through academic education and continuous professional development in emerging and developing countries, on scientific research on animal welfare, on raising awareness towards animal welfare in society and on the search for solutions to a global animal-friendly future.
