Working with real heros

Richard November 13th 2016

We’re really happy to announce a new client today.

After beating 7 other agencies from around the world, Gather has been chosen to deliver a new website and CRM integration in 2017 for charity Apopo.


The organisation trains rats to sniff out landlines and identify tuberculosis sufferers around the world. This life saving work couldn’t be done without the generous support of Apopo’s donors and we’re thrilled to be part of such a great cause.




Meet Ikemba, a 3 year old African Giant Pouched Rat who works in Angola. With his help, the people who live there can work and play without fear. Ikemba was the runt of the litter who nearly didn’t make it but thanks to the dedicated support of the Apopo team, he grew up to be a kind and sociable fellow with the job title of ‘Mine Detection Rat’.


Ikemba needs your support. You can adopt Ikemba now or learn more about his and the other Apopo rats great work here
