Our international teams are invaluable in our efforts to improve the welfare of donkeys around the world and every single individual’s contribution is appreciated. But today, in honour of International Women’s Day, we would like to give special recognition to the role of the women in our overseas programmes – from harness makers and accountants to community education officers and vets. Their contribution, whether working directly with donkeys and communities or supporting field staff in administration duties, is incredible and we would not have the same impact without their help. In many countries, donkeys help alleviate the burden of women in their domestic chores. They are essential for daily activities such as collecting water and firewood or taking produce to market to earn a living. Yet working with local women and their donkeys would, in many places, be impossible without the contact of our female staff. We would therefore like to share some photos of these incredible women at work and say a big thank you to them all.
83p out of every £1 goes directly on donkey welfare and care
