" I believe that the future of global health and wellbeing lies in One Health, a notion that human, animal and environmental wellbeing are inextricably interlinked. Our invasion of ecosystems, our increased exploitation of animals and our profound environmental footprints drive us towards an increasingly fragile relationship with the natural world. One source of instability is working animal health in impoverished communities, but simple improvements in animal welfare could have profound impacts on equality and health standards in affected areas. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Empowerment Through Working Animal Health
Working animals are a source of empowerment for disadvantaged communities. As their welfare is intrinsically linked with the income and wellbeing of their owners, maintaining high standards of animal health can help raise areas out of extreme poverty. By aiming to supply impoverished communities with basic knowledge and materials to promote animal welfare, ETWAH seeks to improve the lives of communities in need. By mid-2021, ETWAH aims to supply one animal welfare/first aid kit per five animals to a minimum of three communities with an average income of under $1.25, reaching a total of at least 1000 working animals.
