With your help, Charity Pot and our charitable giving initiatives provide funding for small, grassroots groups in the following areas: environment; animal protection; and human rights. Below is a list of the charities we have supported:
FUNDA NENJA - We work with the dogs and children of Mpophomeni Township just outside Howick, KZN. The children are taught to use humane, gentle methods of handling and training their dogs using only positive reinforcement training methods. (Using treats as a reward). The dogs are also treated for ticks, fleas, worms and given regular rabies vaccinations. All the dogs that join the program are also fitted with a collar and lead and given a blanket and food bowl on their first day. We have an education officer who does home visits for each and every child that attends the program and educates the whole family about basic animal welfare issues. We also have a social worker who attends to the children's psycho social needs as a lot of them come from very poor or abusive homes. We currently have about 80 children and dogs in the program.
