By donating to Equitarian Initiative, you are supporting the health of working equids and also helping improve the lives of the families that depend on them. Thank you for your generosity!
Working equids are a source of financial stability for families and they relieve burdens for women and children in particular.
Mules and donkeys in particular play a pivotal role in developing rural communities across the world.
Over the next 50 years, if changes in climate and availability of fuels continue, it is likely that more people, not fewer, will come to depend on working animals.
To positively affect change, engagement and dialog with practical, positive, and achievable advice is required.
We must emphasize the role of the working equid in society and we must try to generate legislative support for the equine species in the economic structure of the countries concerned.
From our clothes to our coffee to our coconut water, we are all benefitting from the hard work of these beautiful animals. Working equids play an integral role in our own consumerism, carrying the raw ingredients for products we later buy from field to market. Our consumerism literally rests on their backs!
Supporting the Equitarian Initiative allows you to practice responsible consumption and advocate for the welfare of animals. But it’s not only that. The families that own and care for these beasts of burden suffer economically when their animals are not well and cannot work.
By facilitating our mission, you support not only the health of working equids but also the health of the families that depend on them…and you can enjoy that coconut water guilt free.
