For many years Help in Suffering has promoted improved animal welfare by encouraging training and education, whether this is showing others our methods, training our own staff, encouraging students, or preparing written reports of our work for publication. For many years we received a grant from the Humane Society International to help us help other groups to develop their skills. After the expiry of this grant we have tried to continue to help others improve, and by doing so we hope we also improve in knowledge and skills.
Help in Suffering staff have helped in training sessions held by the AWBI and others and have participated in various courses and workshops. We encourage veterinary students to gain experience with us. We try to promote teamwork in our daily duties so that we may learn from each other.
Help in Suffering has added to the formal body of scientific literature, mainly about ABC matters and street dog biology, and in contributing to publications such as the Animal Welfare Board of India’s Standard Operating Procedures for ABC work.
