Animal protection in GreeceTakis Shelter

“The people, they think I’m crazy. But for me, when I see these dogs suffer from pain, they have a soul...so I want to help them. It makes me feel so good.”— TAKIS

Theoklitos Proestakis, also known as Takis, was a DJ and owner of a nightclub on the Greek island of Crete for 20 years. After leaving the nightlife behind in 2014 and selling his club, he wanted to take a closer look at the local garbage dump and was shocked when he came across dozens of dogs there. Emaciated, injured, sick, scared – this is how Takis describes the animals and immediately makes it his mission to change things. He founded a place where stray animals could find refuge: Takis shelter.

The beginning was not easy. More and more animals, mainly dogs, were found by Takis or handed over to him.The economic crisis in Greece in particular meant that more people were unable to care for their pets and therefore abandoned them. At the same time, Takis was running out of the money he had saved up to buy the land, food and medical care for the animals. But he never thought of giving up.

A magazine reported on Takis Shelter and overnight he became a local celebrity! From one day to the next, Takis had thousands of likes and followers on his social media. This attention raises enough donations for Takis to continue his mission.

Currently over 500 animals live on the 33,000  property. Takis has already been able to find loving homes for over 1000 animals.

But the work is not getting any less. Takis hasn’t had a day off since 2014. He always has volunteers but they never stay long because of the hard work.

In March, we visited Takis on Crete with donations in our luggage and gained an insight into his everyday life. He talks about the good things about life in the shelter, but also about the darker side and the hard work that is almost impossible for one person to do alone.

This is now set to change.

WuWIT has been supporting Takis Shelter since April by sponsoring two permanent employees to take some of the pressure off Takis. At the same time, we have been involved in the adoption of a dog by taking it to Germany and handing it over to its new family.

Empowering young people

Star for Life foundation:
Together we can make a difference!

Together for self-confident schoolchildren.

WuWIT GmbH supports the Star For Life Foundation in its education programme for school children in poor regions in southern Africa and takes on a three-year class sponsorship.

Due to the overload and shortage of teachers in Africa, teachers are often forced to concentrate exclusively on teaching. Star for Life intervenes here with 60 full-time coaches in 120 public schools, completing the regular school curriculum throughout the school year. Using the SEL (Social Emotional Learning) method, school children are helped to cope with adversity, change and stress and to see themselves as valuable human beings who can achieve anything. Through a combination of inspiring enthusiasm, music and art, psychosocial support, life skills education, HIV literacy and attention to the individual learner, all school children get the support they need.

The goal is to produce high-achieving children with good self-esteem who learn in challenging environments, graduate from high school and go on to successful careers.

WuWit GmbH will not only support the project with a financial donation over the next three years, but will also give away IT hardware and would like to lay the foundation for a sponsorship of a student (m/f/d) during this time in order to support them on their way to working life.

The focus is on 4 of the 17 global UN Sustainable Development Goals. No Poverty, Health and Wellbeing, Quality Education and Gender Equality will be sustainably promoted through coaching by WuWit.

Animal welfareEndangered cheetahs

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) is the fastest land animal in the world and belongs to the subspecies of small cats (Felinae).

Cheetahs are graceful, elegant, majestic beauties. The cheetah’s physique is configured entirely for speed, but lacks stamina. Its slender body and long, thin legs are especially suited for high acceleration of up to 120 km/h.

Its claws, which unlike all other cats it cannot retract, give it a necessary grip on the ground. The cheetah uses its 70 cm long tail for steering and can thus change direction quickly even at high speed. Another feature of this feline predator is its coat pattern. The fur of this terrestrial animal is golden yellow with small black spots.

The population known today includes only less than 7000 adults in the savannah and steppe, mainly in Africa and a few in Iran. Natural enemies include lions and hyenas, which pose a threat especially to young animals. Today, cheetahs inhabit only a fraction of their original habitat and are considered endangered.

Nearly 95% of these cheetahs live outside protected areas, mainly on farmland used for livestock. However, farmers see the cheetahs as a threat to their herds. They hunt the cheetahs and set traps to kill them. Locals also hunt them for bush meat.

A predator before extinction

WuWIT,

Those who do not respect an animal’s dignity are not able to strip it from them, and yet they manage to lose their own.

    CITES

    Cheetahs are listed in Appendix I of the Washington Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES), which prohibits international trade. In order to be able to effectively counter the endangerment/threat, CITES was amended in 1973. Nevertheless, there is still illegal trade of skins and of young animals as pets, which represents a further danger for the cheetahs.

    What to do!

    Here is an example from Dr. Laurie Maker, she founded the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia in 1990. This American zoologist is committed to keeping cheetahs in our world. One of Laurie Marker’s projects for sustainability is the breeding of guard dogs, such as the Anatolian Kangal. Laurie Marker and her team train these dogs and provide them to farmers. Kangals are not afraid of predators and cheetahs would never mess with them either – so the livestock is protected from becoming prey for cheetahs. This can save the lives of a good 500 cheetahs per year.

    WuWIT

    WuWIT GmbH supports Pro Wildlife with a donation against trophy hunting and commercial use of cheetahs. We support the anti-poaching network EAGLE and fight for strict international trade prohibitions.

    Things are not looking good for the fastest terrestrial animal on earth. But giving up is not an option. We fight for the international protection of endangered species. Trade and trophy hunting bans along with habitat protection, are all on the agenda of sustainability. It’s time at act already! We help, you help too! Pro Wildlife!

    Animal welfare

    Illegal trade continues despite prohibition.

    Trade prohibitions

    Strict international trade bans are a necessity.

    Import prohibitions

    Business analyst

    At WuWIT, the focus is on people, so that you are not just seen as a number or a job performance, but are valued because of who you are. For me, working at WuWIT means that I not only get to do my job, but I also get to contribute my personality and feel good about it. The variety of exciting projects I can work on provides variety and challenges me again and again, which gives me valuable experience and insight. In addition, at WuWIT I can get involved in various sustainable topics and projects that are very important to the company. Not only do I feel the recognition for my work, but I can also fully stand behind the results and represent them ethically and morally.As a result, it’s also easy to find like-minded colleagues here, whose diversity gives me unique new perspectives.

    WuWIT is a unique experience and I am glad to have done it and continue to do it every day.

     

    Tree donation

    "There is nothing good,
    unless you do it."

    Erich Kästner

    Sustainability

    WuWIT GmbH donates 4 trees for every 500th click on the WuWIT GmbH website, cf. counter. For this purpose, it commissions the registered association in Germany Green Forest Fund to plant these trees on German forest plots. These plots are not used for economic purposes and so the trees can grow for a lifetime.

    Sustainability
    WuWIT has already planted 4 trees for almost all employees. Why exactly four trees?
    Over the course of 100 years, a tree absorbs an average of three tons of CO2.
    That’s about the amount each of us generates in three months. So four trees planted each year equals our average personal carbon footprint.
