Project name: Ghana Society for the Protection & Care of Animals (GSPCA)

Project type: Education

Location: Accra

Working in selected schools in the Ga East region of Accra, this project aims to promote animal welfare through humane education lessons. The lessons have changed children’s perceptions of animals, while the wider community has become more aware of animal welfare issues and the services available at local veterinary clinics.

The project is being monitored by a selected circuit school supervisor, the district director of education, who visits schools during lesson periods. GSPCA evaluation shows attitudes towards animals have markedly improved, while cruelty towards animals has been reduced.
