As a child maybe you dreamed of being an astronaut, a vet or a famous rock star. No matter what you wanted to become, there were certain skills you had to learn, that everyone needs.
In countries where rabies is endemic, one of the most valuable lessons someone can learn as a child is how to spot the signs of rabies. It could be the difference between life and death.
Knowing how to protect themselves against rabies is a lesson that will save their life.
Mission Rabies works in rabies hotspots, vaccinating dogs against rabies, and educating people so they know how to protect themselves until the threat of rabies is gone.
But it is not just Mission Rabies that thinks these lessons are important.
In Malawi and Goa, India, the Rabies Protection lessons provided by Mission Rabies are now part of the curriculum, placing our vital educational messages in front of over 17 million children every single year.
Mission Rabies gives teachers in rabies hotspots the tools and support they need, empowering them to share the knowledge, preventing rabies and saving lives.
The educational sessions are developed specifically for each country to address the different challenges that are faced.
40% of deaths from rabies are children under the age of fifteen.
But every lesson goes one step further to stopping these needless deaths. Over three million children have been taught how to keep themselves and their families safe from rabies. You can help reach even more.
Mission Rabies is working with Governments and teachers to keep children safe. With your help we can make them the final generation to live in fear of rabies.
