In her job as Brooke’s Community Engagement Advisor, Melissa Liszewski sees Brooke’s work with horses in Ethiopia first hand. Here is an update from Africa.
Omar Fane, 51, from the market town of Sokone, Senegal became a farrier at 14 when his father taught him the traditional methods of farriery. Brooke has been working with Omar for two years, training him on safer and more welfare-friendly trimming techniques.
Brooke, with the help of partner UGAN, has employed a Community Change Agent (known as a Relay) in Badoudou Village, Senegal to run community training sessions on topics including provision of shelter and hoof care.
Successful North Yorkshire author Hannah Russell and her miniature Shetland pony, internet sensation Little Alf, are heading to Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show to help Brooke raise awareness of the charity’s work with vulnerable horses, donkeys and mules overseas.
Brooke Action for Working Horses and donkeys has been named as the chosen charity for the South of England Show, by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall.
Brooke is calling for dedicated people to lend their time to help fundraise at this year’s Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show.
We are pleased to announce that Brooke’s Innovation Fund is re-launching. After a successful first year that saw Brooke fund nine projects across the developing world and in the UK, we are starting to see the positive results and the lessons that trialling new approaches to equine welfare can bring.
