It's actually 100k dogs over 10 days which = 10,000 dogs per day using 125 teams (120 door to door teams and 5 capture-vaccinate-release teams) made up of government staff and international volunteers. That's 80 vacinations per team per day, definitely hard work, but definitely possible.
The volunteer fee quotes is the cost for volunteers living overseas and covers all in-country costs. If anyone would like to volunteer who lives in Phnom Penh, please get in touch by emailing [email protected] and we can discuss how you could work with us to make Phnom Penh safe from rabies.
We don't just need people with animal handling experience, the navigation and data collection using our smart-phone application and the vaccination card writing is an essential part of the process and can be done by anyone.
Keep an eye on the media, our website (www.missionrabies.com) and this thread for more information and a detailed schedule of where we will be in November to get your dog protected against rabies for FREE!
Also are the government staff conditioned to pay the same fees as overseas volunteers?
This is a collaborative project with the government with a predicted ratio of about 90:10 gov:volunteers. Gov will not be paying anything to us, rather they will be directing resources alongside us into the project.
The aim is to build government capacity and train the government workers to be able to run the project (with our technical support) in subsequent years. And hopefully expand nationally, but that depends on this initial project.
Hope that answers your question
