Sauda Kassim Kupi - Donkey Love

Sauda Kassim Kupi – Donkey Love

Date grant awarded: April 6, 2019

The Donkey Love project will train donkey operators in Faza, Pate Island, and Lamu on how to properly care for the animals, including nutrition, rest needs, and medical care. Many people in Lamu rely on these animals for their livelihood and transportation of goods however do not have the correct information and training on how to handle the animals. Sauda Kupi and her team will work with the Donkey Operators Association to change how donkeys are treated.

The funds will allow them to construct a water well for the animals, hold seminars for the donkey operators, and provide veterinary training for designated members.
