About the Brooke
Horses, donkeys and mules are the engines that power the developing world. Around 100 million of them labour on country roads, tracks, fields, farms, factories and city centres.
They transport a huge range of loads from people, produce, food and water to building materials such as bricks and even iron girders.
Many of these animals endure poor health, agonising pain, exhaustion, dehydration and malnutrition as a direct result of terrible workloads, poor nutrition, handling and housing. The situation is often compounded by a lack of accessible and affordable animal health services. The result is extreme suffering for millions of working horses, donkeys and mules across the developing world – and insecure livelihoods for millions of poor people who rely on these animals to earn a basic living.
WHO WE ARE
The Brooke is an international non-governmental organisation dedicated to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules through direct veterinary treatment and community programmes around animal health and well-being.
We work with individuals, groups and organisations to ensure working equine animals get the living and working conditions they deserve. With over 800 staff in the field we currently work in eleven countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
The Brooke’s work also benefits poor people who rely on these animals for their livelihoods. The majority of working horses and donkeys are owned by individuals who use them to support their primary means of income to sustain often large and extended families. These animals are becoming ever more important in developing countries to alleviate poverty, assure food security and promote self-reliance.
The Brooke's GOAL
This year, it will help more than 800,000 working horses, donkeys and mules, which will also benefit more than four million people who depend on these animals for their livelihood.
The next two years will see the Brooke make further steps towards achieving its goal of improving the welfare of two million animals every year
About the Proposal:
Many people who depend on working horses, donkeys and mules for a living (an average of five or more per working horse,donkey or mule in rural areas) face real problems in rearing their animals.Animals often become sick because of a lack of proper food and clean water - their owners simply can’t afford to provide them. Financial pressures also force owners to overwork their animals
Adequately trained people with knowledge and experience in treating working horses, donkeys and mules are hard to find. Central Government does advise on animal husbandry policies but it is the State Governments who are responsible for promoting it.Unfortunately, when we look at the situation at district level, we are finding that vet hospitals, dispensaries and mobile treatment facilities do exist, but are generally under resourced and ill-equipped. The good news is, we are playing an important part in improving the situation.
Making a difference
The overall goal of the project is to measurably improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules in India.Today, to help achieve this goal, we have teams in Delhi and eleven districts of Uttar Pradesh, the state with the highest concentration of working horses, donkeys and mules in India. We also work in Andhra Pradesh, Uttarkhand and Rajasthan through local partners.
In 2009 and continuing in 2010 we will be:
·) making sure that sustainable, good quality vet services are available to, and used by, working horses, donkeys and mules ensuring that sustainable resources (water, feed, shade, saddlery, farriery, carts, etc.) are available for the benefit of working animals
· continuing to encourage animal-owning communities to adopt welfare friendly management practices
· influencing the government animal husbandry department to give proportionate focus to the welfare of working horses and donkeys
Brooke India reports that owners in many of the communities in which it works are taking increased responsibility for the welfare of their animals.
In 2009 we reached almost 130,000 working horses, donkeys and mules.
