AfA Connect 2024
CONNECT with AfA in 2024!
The Asia for Animals Coalition invites you to AfA Connect, a quarterly series of free online events designed to help keep you connected to what’s happening in our network.
Over the course of two days, each event will feature engaging discussion and presentations about the issues affecting our member organizations and the animals we are working to protect across Asia. AfA Connect will provide animal protection workers with the chance to engage on the issues affecting their work and to find solutions, together, to the challenges that we all face.
This series of events will help organizations connect with information, ideas, solutions, and collaboration opportunities in the challenging world of animal advocacy.
