BENEFITING: EMANCIPATION NETWORK
EVENT DATE: Mar 01, 2015
Animal People Alliance (APA) is a project of The Emancipation Network / Made By Survivors, which has been working to improve the lives of slavery survivors through economic empowerment and education since 2005.
Our objectives are to create a national network to train and employ vulnerable youth and women as veterinary technicians, dog handlers, animal caregivers, etc. offering ongoing training, oversight and resources to the trainees and to the shelters where they are ultimately employed. We will partner with existing animal shelters and help to improve their resources and infrastructure so they can accommodate more animals and have a bigger impact.
To help us meet our fundraising goal and to raise awareness about our project we will be riding an autorickshaw from Mothers Heart in Kolkata, West Bengal to Animal Aid Unlimited in Udaipur, Rajasthan!!! That's a whopping 1135 miles in a tiny 3 person, 3 wheel auto!!
Along the way we will be stopping at some great grassroots NGOs and highlighting their work PLUS educating our followers about the issues of animal welfare and womens empowerment in India. We will be doing updates throughout the trip on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so you can stay up to date on all our adventures! It's going to be a once in a lifetime experience and a great oppourtunity to get the word out about how you can help impact the lives of animals and people at the same time!
