Our donkey project is an educational programme targeted at donkey owners in the wider Maun area. The Equine Education & Welfare Officer will educate and train selected community-based animal health workers to operate as a donkey health and welfare ambassador, and have the skills to charge local animal owners a small fee for the diagnoses and administration of antibiotics, training and/or farrier work. The programme will act as a form of livestock insurance for communities to ensure their donkeys live longer, are healthier and happier, and can work more effectively and efficiently.
