Knowledge ExchangeFIAPO runs a Knowledge Exchange programme to enable organisations and activists get quick help and support. If you need to write a press release, or speak to someone about rescuing a dog, or get support for submitting your accounts - this is the right place to be!
To enable learning from experts (on legal issues, campagning, advocacy etc) - we organise workshops, that are open to all to attend.
We also run support services, of varying levels, that are available for a variety of issues. More information on this is available below.
What people say:
This incredible response goes way beyond anything I expected. I am amazed at the quick assistance and devoted care given by all involved, and can hardly believe what I see in the pictures!
Big, big kudos to everybody involved, and keep up the amazing work. This has warmed my heart more than I can say.
-- Frida Stavenow, on receiving help with animal care in Jodhpur, where there were no animal protection organisations or activists.
