Training the Community Animal Health Workers Committee from Naitolia, Tanzania

Members of the CAHW release recently dipped cattle from the drying pen

 

Animal health services provided at the cattle dip facilities continue to have a positive impact. The dip is used twice monthly by local villagers and members of neighboring communities. To ensure the safe management and sustainability of the dip, TPP organized and supported training for all new members of the Community Animal Health Workers (CAHW) committee. Members completed four weeks of training at the government-operated Tengeru Livestock Training Agency in Arusha. Training covered cattle dip operations, poultry nutrition, vaccination of cattle, goats, and poultry, and animal disease recognition. The five members who successfully completed the training received graduation certificates and basic equipment. The dip continues to produce enough income to be self-sustaining. TPP provides follow-up support on infrastructure maintenance and management of the cattle dip budget.
