Volunteers on this
holiday will get one day worth of useful training and lectures where
you will be able to share your own knowledge of animals as well as
learn about what we want to achieve and what we want the children on
the Island of Kos to learn.
The main reason for an
educational program is because many children follow in the footsteps
of their parents! The parents have followed the footsteps of their
parents and so on. We need to break the chain in how animals are
thought of and the best way for everyone to learn is to teach the
children so that they can educate their parents and hopefully we will
be able to save the next generation of humans and animals on the
Island of Kos.
Our main effort will be
to teach children that dogs and cats can have a brilliant impact on
their lives, and other peoples. We want to teach children that the
domestic animals can have jobs and be useful to them, they can be
more than the guard dogs they buy them for and that they deserve to
be treated well as they are such loyal animals.
Our project for next
summer will be the earthquake project.
As we all know, the
Aegean and Kos Island, is on a major fault line and a future
earthquake is inevitable, with the current state of the buildings on
the island, a lot of them will collapse and people may get trapped.
Our dogs, will be trained for such events, and we want to teach
children that they too, can train their own dog to be a rescue animal
who may on day be able to save the lives of their family members.
We also want to teach the
children on the island about reporting animals in danger, in bad
health, stray animals people who are cruel to animals.
your 1st days training, volunteers will then be taken around the island
to see the effects of strays, what we are trying to do to for the
animals and will also meet other volunteers and people on the island
who have been affected by the way animals are being treated on the
The 7 day experience will give you a different experience each day of your stay.
