In Northern Gorkha only equine is means of transportation. No other modern means of transportations are available there. Equine carry all the necessary goods, all basic needs to the people and animal of northern Gorkha. Without equine no lives are possible over there. Despite of its importance equine are considered as under-rated animal over there. They fulfill other people and animals basic needs but their simple basic needs are not secure there. Considering these fact we launched our project from April, 2010 and tried our best to enhance equine welfare and uplift livelihood of equine owner and handlers, sensitized local government to focus equine on their annual planning, budget, provided Equine related training to local Animal Health Practitioner, minimized superstitious belief by raising awareness among people and so on.
