We Donkey Rights Group are concerned by high demand of donkeys for slaughter in Kenya, causing depleting of donkey population in Kenya, livelihoods are at stake and this animals are Endangered.
Donate to Helps us raise awareness and stop this Evil.

Not so long ago here in Kenya the population of Donkeys has been tremendously high but due to poverty and lack of knowledge local communities have been deceived to sell their donkeys for slaughter...

The Younger Chinese generation is driving the importation of tonnes of donkey meat from Kenya, which is in turn threatening to reduce the donkey numbers .The report published in January this year shows that China’s demand for donkey hides is hinged on the skin’s medicinal properties. A gelatinous material- E’jiao – is believed to have anti-ageing and libido-enhancing properties, fueling the demand for donkey hides.

Who are we? And why we are crowdfunding?

We are young men and women in group called Donkey Rights Group,committed to mobilize,educate the affected communities and bring advocacy to steps of the local administration to stop mass selling and slaughter of Donkeys here in Kenya.
