Increasing our Compassionate Footprint

Nowhere is our work more important than in the classroom

Classroom behaviour and bullying Consultant Yossi Vissoker conducts a workshop at a senior secondary school in Khayelitsha.

Consultant Vivienne Rutgers explains how a Foundation Phase recource fits into the curriculum for Life Skills.


This year Humane Education became a household name as far afield as Malawi!


In co-operation with Netcare 911  and the International Fund for Animal Welfare, our comic-book on rabies awareness  ‘Friends don’t bite!’ reached the children in Lilongwe.

Delegate comments

“I wish all educators from different schools could attend these workshops – even parents, for the benefit of their children.”


“The workshop was good for me. Challenging. Very informative.”


“An eye-opener. I wish more schools could attend these workshops.”


“Such a great workshop. Anyone who didn’t make it (to the workshop) missed out on something big.”

In calling for more comics, Dr Richard Ssuna, Director of the Lilongwe Society for the Protection and Care of Animals (LSPCA) said the comics had been a ‘whopping success’ and that the learners who had received the comic, prior to the rabies vaccination clinics being held in their neighbourhoods, had all made the effort to take their dogs to be vaccinated.
