NOWZAD knows that the most effective way to change the future of animal welfare is through education.
One day, we hope to have the funding required to have a clinic in every province in Afghanistan. But at this moment, Nowzad is but one veterinary facility in a vast and diverse country that is home to countless animals, who at some point in their lives, will need vaccinations, medication, treatment or care.
So, in the meantime, how can we be there for them?
The Nowzad clinic is based in Kabul (a city which is home to several veterinary education facilities) and we are proud to say that we have partnered with these institutions, including the Kabul Veterinary University, to ensure that the future Veterinarians of Afghanistan receive essential training, so that animals all over Afghanistan will be treated proficiently and empathetically.
With over an impressive ONE HUNDRED Veterinary Students annually enrolled in our Practical Training programme, it is always a challenge to juggle our daily animal welfare commitments with the demands of turning our clinic into a classroom whilst tending to our ‘walk-in’ clients.
But, where there is a will there is a way and our staff do not let anything get in the way of providing much-needed education.
