Working donkeys in rural Zambia often provide a lifeline for their owners, who use them for farming and for transportation of goods to market. It is a harsh life for many of these animals, with poverty and lack of knowledge about donkey care often resulting in suffering through neglect and injury.
At ZWDP we have begun to tackle these issues...
We aim to improve the lives of working donkeys, and support their owners in a practical way, by;
educating people about how to care for their animals - a healthy, happy donkey will be a worthwhile long term investment!
providing training to make harnesses and modify carts & ploughs - ensuring they are appropriate for equine use and the job they need to do.
rescuing and rehabilitating animals in need of short or long term special care.
