This week a group of four bright, young women from The Learning Tea in Darjeeling, India traveled to Animal Aid Unlimited in Udaipur for a week of orientation before starting the first official Animal People Alliance Animal Welfare Training later this summer! We’ve been working towards this moment for almost two years and are excited to finally get this phase of our project off the ground! During their week at AAU they got to know the staff, tour the facility and get hands on with many of the animals like calves and the handicapped dogs. The women exhibited an immense passion and love for the animals and far surpassed even our most lofty expectations! Some of their favorite moments were spent massaging and swimming with the handicapped dogs who absolutely LOVE the attention and affection they received from the women.
The group will now return to Darjeeling to finish getting their rabies vaccinations and prepare for the 2 month training that will begin this summer! They had so many amazing moments and experiences on this trip that we asked them to write about it and will share their stories with you in the follwing days so check back.
We want to extend a very special thank you to all our supporters who have helped us get to this point. You have been very patient while we worked out all the complicated details to get this project off the ground and we are so grateful to have you in our corner! We couldn’t have reached this milestone without your support!
