Donkeys are wonderfully well suited to the needs of rural Rwanda. They can carry loads up and down the hilly terrain. They will happily draw a plough, and help fertilise the field en route. Most extraordinary is their inbuilt satnav, enabling them to learn a route and follow it by themselves (happy to trot back and forth throughout the day) thus liberating women from the daily trudge to fetch water. Rwanda needs more donkeys, but they have to be imported meaning higher costs of transport, quarantine and certification.
Did you know... Donkeys are slow to breed - they are pregnant for a year. And once it foals the mother donkey refuses to work if her offspring is present. That gives pause for thought.
