Alfred Ntando Sihwa is the founder and director of Sibanye Animal Welfare and Conservancy Trust (SAWCT). He received a grant for research into how modern laws and traditional practices affect animal welfare in Zimbabwe. Interviews will be conducted with those in the community, including elders, traditional healers, and veterinarians. Alfred writes:
The main reason for this project is to identify how traditional practices act as a hindrance to or promote animal welfare in Zimbabwe. This project has come into being after realizing the gap that exists between the traditional and modern communities in animal welfare–related care and the humane treatment of animals.
