Sustainable Equine Welfare through Improved Human Behavior and Working Environment

Sustainable Equine Welfare through Improved Human Behavior and Working Environment is a project funded by a leading overseas charity named Brooke Action for Working Horses and Donkeys UK. It is a pioneering project in Nepal that works for animal welfare issues, especially of equines. The project aims to improve the working equine welfare situation by encouraging community participation and establishing linkage among the local systems for sustainable working equine welfare in the project districts. Currently this project is being implemented in 13 districts of Nepal namely Ilam, Jumla, Rautahat, Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Gorkha, Kaski, Baglung, Banke, Bardiya, Dang, Rukum and Darchula. Welfare groups/Union formation and mobilization, awareness raising among stakeholders, skill enhancement of local service providers (including government Vet Technicians) and periodic and emergency treatment services to the equines in need are the key components of this project.
