We work closely with policy makers and civil society organisations at global and national levels. We arm them with the evidence, knowledge and technical support they need to improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules.
Brooke hosted the first ever cross-sector regional brick kiln advocacy event.
This Policy exists to ensure that anyone representing Brooke demonstrates good practice in relation to animal welfare, and conducts themselves in a manner commensurate with their role as ambassadors for the organisation and animal welfare advocates.
On 16 November 2015, international and national policy stakeholders, researchers and civil society organisations gathered in London for a Brooke-hosted policy conference highlighting the multiple contributions of livestock to livelihoods and national economies.
On 14 May 2014 Brooke held its first policy report launch for 'Invisible Helpers', which presents the findings from the Voices from Women research project conducted in Ethiopia, Kenya, India and Pakistan.
This report is part of our policy and research to increase knowledge of the links between working equine welfare and human welfare. It focuses on the economic contributions of working horses, mules and donkeys to household incomes and aims to highlight to policymakers that these animals are financially benefiting their owners.
In 2013 Brooke initiated the Voices from Women research project to explore the role of working horses, mules and donkeys in supporting the lives of women from the perspectives of the women themselves.
As part of our guest lecture series, Brooke have been inviting leading figures within the animal welfare sector to come share their knowledge with Brooke. In this video Harry Eckman from Change for Animals Foundation and a Consultant for IFAW came to Brooke to talk about building animal welfare capacity in difficult situations.
