Sponsor an Education Programme

When you empower people through education, everything changes. Help us change lives for good.

Please support TEARS by funding or partnering with us in implementing more TEARS Compassion Education and Pet Care Programme in the four vulnerable communities we serve.

  • TRAINERS: Each dedicated 12-week Programme is facilitated by a TEARS Trainer and three TEARS Animal Welfare Assistants
  • LEARNERS: 20 pre-registered community-based learners from Grade 4 – 12 will attend a 60-minute weekly interactive and valuable learning session
  • TRAINING & SUPPORT MATERIAL: Each registered learner receives a weekly meal after attending and Pet Care support in the form of weekly pet food, a collar and a lead.
  • BENEFITS: Each learner that graduates receives a Graduation T-shirt and certificate with the opportunity to apply to the TEARS Volunteer Learnership Programme for over 18’s.
  • MEASURING IMPACT: Each registered learner who graduates will complete a short questionnaire facilitated by the TEARS Trainer at the end of the Programme. This information will be shared with our sponsor/s and partners in the form of a POST PROGRAMME IMPACT REPORT

For more information on the Programme and how you or your organisation can get involved please email partnerships@tears.org.za.


Compassion Education is life-changing for a child, their family, their community, and the companion animals that share those communities.
