How it works

When you adopt a rat, you will be supporting APOPO's HeroRATs who are saving lives in the real world. We will take you through your rat's development and training in real time, through to graduation where you can choose if your rat becomes a fully operational HeroRAT in TB Screening or Landmine Detection.

We'll keep you informed of your rat's development along the way, and its REAL WORLD impact through your personalized myapopo wall, where you'll receive badges as your rat progresses and see what impact your rat is having when it becomes operational.
