Sparking enthusiasm for animal welfare from within the new generation of Fijians
One of the most rewarding aspects of working at Animals Fiji for our staff is creating change right from the beginning. Our staff love sharing their passion for animal welfare with the youngest generation of Fijians and their enthusiasm for animals is difficult to resist!
Whenever possible during our Outreach Clinics our Veterinarians and Vet Assistants talk to school aged children about how to care for animals and the joy they can bring to their lives
We are delighted to announce that from July 2018 we are pairing with Champs on Wheels to spark a passion for animal welfare in Fiji’s youngest generation! Champs on Wheels is a non for profit subsidy of Lil Champs Preschool & Daycare. Champs on Wheels visits schools in villages across the greater Nadi area taking with them toys, books and educational supplies and soon will have an Animals Fiji staff member on hand once a week to talk to children from a very young age about why it is important to care for animals. We are extremely excited!! To learn more about Lil Champs visit https://www.facebook.com/KindergartenFiji/ or https://www.facebook.com/lilchamps.nadi/
Our goal for the near future is to petition the Ministry of Education to include an animal welfare subject into the Fiji curriculum--ensuring every school child is taught about animal welfare and the One-Health Policy.
