Brooke is looking to recruit a Campaigns Coordinator who will coordinate all campaign efforts in realising the ban. The position holder will work with Brooke EA, its partner organizations as well as Brooke UK in organising and mobilising public opinion leaders, key stakeholders, decision makers and policy influencers/ makers to support Brooke’s position on donkey hide trade. The Campaigns Coordinator will report to the Regional Director/ CEO.
From 2009 census, Kenya had a population of 1.8 million donkeys. However, with the licensing of four slaughter houses in Kenya slaughtering approximately 1000 donkeys per day, has seen theft of donkeys go up as well as smuggling of donkeys from neighbouring countries. Brooke is calling for a ban on the export of donkey skins and associated products from Kenya and a crackdown on cross border smuggling of donkeys into Kenya for their skins.
