Ekantakuna, December 2012 – In order to be able to help more working equines, Animal Nepal hired four paravets for its outreach teams. Radhika Poudel, Gopal BK, Hari Shrestha and Shankar Sapkota will join Tara Budhatoki in the mobile teams visiting brick factories. Programme Manager Assistant Uttam Kafle will be coordinating the activities in the brick kilns.
Around 1500 equines work in brick factories in Kathmandu Valley, hauling bricks under tough conditions. This season Animal Nepal will be working in brick kilns in Lalitpur as well as Bhaktapur district. Animal Nepal will be focusing on creating a business model that works, implementing education and evidence based outreach, livelihood development and advocacy at national and international level.
