The formation of AfriPaw was inspired by local Marina Da Gama resident, Annette van der Berg, who started feeding a small number of township dogs in Vrygrond (an informal settlement near Muizenberg in the Western Cape) every morning on her way to work. The few dogs quickly became 10, then 20 and then 30. Annette started working with the community by helping people with their pets, scouting the area over weekends, facilitating sterilisations, re-homing unwanted pets and stepping in when there were emergencies. Her faithful work soon came to the attention of a reporter from a local newspaper, The False Bay Echo. An article, entitled “Feeding the Hungry Hounds” appeared on 9 February 2017 and Fish Hoek resident, Anél Wesson responded to the general invitation for assistance. The two joined forces the very next day and the idea of AfriPaw was conceived. AfriPaw Animal Welfare partners with low-income communities to educate families on their pets’ primary needs and facilitates free sterilisations, as well as access to affordable primary healthcare, food and shelter for township pets. With our door-to-door approach we aim to form relationships and build trust with the community and our first priority is to always try and help pets where they are. Our strategy is to identify, train and equip responsible, animal-loving locals, who are our eyes and ears and who are a permanent presence in the community, ultimately becoming respected “go-to” persons. At this point, AfriPaw focuses its efforts on serving the people and pets of Vrygrond, reputedly the oldest informal settlement in the Western Cape, situated just off the M5, close to Muizenberg. There are approximately 90 000 residents and thousands of dog and cats living in this community. Our geographic boundary is strictly Vrygrond (which includes Seawinds and Overcome Heights) but we hope to replicate our model and expand our reach to other low-income communities in the future. The Vision of AfriPaw Animal Welfare is to see communities that treasure their pets, provide for their needs, and protect them from suffering and disease. Our Mission is to partner with low-income communities to educate families on their pets’ primary needs and facilitate access to affordable support services, with a focus on mass sterilisation. Our Objectives are to encourage responsible and accountable pet ownership and prevent neglect by: • Building relationships with the community to create a trusting and enabling environment. • Educating the community on the primary needs and healthcare of their animals. • Facilitating access to affordable medical care, food and shelter. While the rescue and rehoming of animals is necessary in cases of abuse or intentional neglect, we aim to avoid removing pets for several reasons: Neglect of pets often occurs because essential services and support to ensure ideal pet care are inaccessible and unaffordable to pet owners. We find that most pet owners welcome us and embrace our help with deep gratitude and co-operation. We want to foster responsible pet ownership and accountability in our partner communities by promoting optimal pet care and working with community volunteers and role-models. Removal of pets often aids owners to quickly replace the old pet with a new puppy or kitten, resulting in a vicious cycle where little lasting good is achieved.
I'm a Brazilian native, English Portuguese translator and interpreter with 12 years of experience, 50 books translated, and over 1,500 hours of on-site interpreting work. I also do proofreading, localization, transcriptions, and write book reviews/reports. I have a background in arts, fashion, and communication, and I volunteer for Mercy for Animals, Ted Translators, and NGO Olhar Animal. I love to travel and I am currently studying travel writing. I wrote about my journey as a freelancer and working remotely while traveling the world. So it's been a year since the madness started and somehow it feels like nothing has changed but A LOT has changed. My 'now' has been staying low-key and wrapping up projects. I completed the book I was translating in the last semester of 2020. Added some very final touches to a book I worked on early-mid last year, which in turn wraps up a project I started working on in December 2018. Excited for it to come out. Also, I guess I can say I reached the 50 translated books mark (even though a part of it was written in Portuguese so I didn't translate the entire book)! I am still learning French and still feeling like a caveman who can speak single words but not quite put together an entire sentence lol. I also completed a Reiki Level 1 training and initiation course (remotely, ofc) and am now Reiki certified. I am trying to enjoy the little things, like a very rare outing to Rio's Botanical Garden (accidentally picked a lovely 113ºF day, sweet lord), and being in awe of this Sumaúma tree (a personal favorite of Tom Jobim, who would visit the place every day and sit by this exact tree).
Trabajar en algo que nos apasione Como muchas otras ideas de éxito, Barkibu nació en la servilleta de papel de un bar cualquiera. Pablo, Quique y Patri, los socios fundadores, buscaban algo en lo que verter toda su pasión y potencial. Una idea a la que dedicar la mayor parte de su tiempo. Una idea en la que creyesen y que los enamorara. Y sólo había una idea que cumpliera todos estos requisitos: colaborar en la mejora de la calidad de vida de los animales. Nada de acudir a foros donde cualquiera puede respondernos cuando tenemos alguna duda sobre la salud o los cuidados de nuestra mascota. Información profesional veterinaria de primera mano y fácilmente accesible. Barkibu viene de un proceso muy duro de brainstorming...Para que luego haya quien diga Barbiku! Barkibu nació con la idea de crecer e internacionalizarse, así que queríamos algo que se entendiera en el extranjero. De ahí el Bark. También queríamos que los motivadores de esta empresa, nuestros niños-perros, estuvieran representados, ya que sin ellos no existiríamos en primer lugar. Like many other successful ideas, Barkibu was born on the paper napkin of a typical bar. Pablo, Quique and Patri, the founding partners, were looking for something in which to pour all their passion and potential. An idea to which you dedicate most of your time. An idea that they believed in and that would make them fall in love. And there was only one idea that met all these requirements: collaborate in improving the quality of life of animals. Nothing to go to forums where anyone can answer us when we have any questions about the health or care of our pet. First-hand and easily accessible professional veterinary information. Barkibu comes from a very hard brainstorming process ... So that later there will be someone who says Barbiku! Barkibu was born with the idea of growing and internationalizing, so we wanted something that could be understood abroad. Hence the Bark . We also wanted the motivators of this company, our child-dogs, to be represented, as without them we would not exist in the first place.

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio

A finales del 2015 nos unimos cuatro amantes de los animales y las nuevas tecnologías, para encontrar la forma de fusionar estas dos pasiones. Nuestra finalidad era sencilla, crear productos innovadores que ayudaran a las mascotas y sus humanos. Tras darnos cuenta del potencial que los productos wearables podían tener en el sector mascota, comenzamos a realizar un estudio de mercado para saber qué cosas les preocupaban a otros propietarios de perro y con qué problemas se habían encontrado. Los resultados de este estudio marcaron nuestra línea de desarrollo. Gracias a todos los propietarios de perro que participaron en él, aprendimos mucho, sobre todo a escuchar. A mediados de 2016 nació Dinbeat. Como amantes de los animales hemos compartido nuestras vidas con todo tipo de mascotas. Conocemos y entendemos los problemas a los que muchos propietarios se enfrentan, algunos de los cuales tienen aún difícil solución. Es aquí donde centramos nuestros esfuerzos. En estos momentos estamos trabajando en el desarrollo de un wearable para perros que servirá para monitorizarlos a nivel de salud, actividad y ladrido. At the end of 2015, four lovers of animals and new technologies came together to find a way to merge these two passions. Our goal was simple, to create innovative products that would help pets and their humans. After realizing the potential that wearable products could have in the pet sector, we began to carry out a market study to find out what things other dog owners were concerned about and what problems they had encountered. The results of this study marked our line of development. Thanks to all the dog owners who participated in it, we learned a lot, especially to listen. In mid-2016 Dinbeat was born. As animal lovers we have shared our lives with all kinds of pets. We know and understand the problems that many homeowners face, some of which are still difficult to solve. This is where we focus our efforts. We are currently working on the development of a wearable for dogs that will be used to monitor their health, activity and barking.

It’s 2020, and everything is online now, including dog training websites and courses you can take in order to train your dog — all from the comfort of your own home, on your own time.
