APOPO International

APOPO is a social enterprise, registered in Belgium and active in the African Great Lakes Region. APOPO developed an appropriate detection technology, based on the extremely sensitive olfaction capacity of trained rodents. APOPO's mission is to help save the lives of vulnerable population groups by training rats to detect land mines and tuberculosis. This approach has been endorsed by eleven African Great Lakes Region countries to address humanitarian challenges.

A 2017 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported APOPO's mechanical operations, which are essential for the mine detection rats teams to operate efficiently.
