Four Steps to Freedom, formerly known as Friends of Mbwa Wa Africa, is our sister charity in Scotland. Since 2015, they have been campaigning tirelessly to raise the vital funds and awareness we need to free Tanzania from the threat of rabies.
Four Steps to Freedom refers to the tried-and-tested, four-pronged approach we use to eliminate rabies from Tanzania’s communities for good, one town or village at a time:
- Step 1 : Vaccinate
We eliminate rabies from local domestic dog populations through systematic vaccination campaigns that stop infection in its tracks.
- Step 2 : Prevent
We prevent the resurgence of the disease by controlling local dog populations, in sterilisation campaigns led by international volunteer vets.
- Step 3 : Protect
We educate local children about the humane treatment of animals, explaining the risk of rabies and how to avoid it.
- Step 4 : Sustain
We train local vets in small animal surgery skills, not currently taught in Tanzania, empowering them to keep dog populations under control.
By supporting Four Steps to Freedom in their fundraising activities and helping them to tell the story of our lifesaving work, you are directly supporting us to save human lives and stop animal cruelty.
Four Steps to Freedom are currently raising funds to enable us to:
- save more lives faster by building and equipping The Gongo Centre
- fight rabies every day through our ongoing vaccination, spay and neuter campaigns
