Improving Respect for Animals – One Child at a Time
|Together We Can Change The World|
From the start, this program brought together local veterinarians and Bayer colleagues to work together on something bigger than themselves, something good that helps society. The veterinarians and Bayer volunteers visited schools to give interactive sessions for children between the ages of 6 and 10 years old. These trainings showed children the basics of how to respect and care for animals in a simple way, and reinforced the importance of a good relationship between humans and animals.

Bayer strongly supports this program because the education of children has a positive impact on an entire community. Students share their experiences with their families and friends, and the information rapidly spreads. Children can become the best advocates for improving the treatment of animals. “We want to encourage children to look at animals with ‘different eyes’ so they can understand their responsibility to care for these animals, and the world around them,” explains Uwe.

Uwe Mucke and his team are passionately dedicated to this initiative and they appreciate the encouragement Bayer is receiving from schools, governments, the media, and most importantly, from children and their families. “This program brings veterinarians and Bayer volunteers together to work hand in hand for something good. By helping children understand the value of animals, we encourage better care of pets, the adoption of abandoned animals, and a greater appreciation for our individual responsibility to our environment and the world that we live in.”
