About Brooke USA, the inaugural episode of Brooke USA On The Road, features a candid discussion with John Nicholson, chairman of the non-profit's board of directors, on current activities and pivoting plans during COVID-19 with a positive outlook on the organization's future. During the second half of the podcast, Olympic medalist Ali Brock and Grand Prix rider JJ Tate share their viewpoints on Brooke USA's mission after a visit to project sites in the Dry Corridor of Guatemala.
The mission of Brooke USA is to significantly improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules and the people they serve throughout Asia, Africa, the Middle East, the Americas and the Caribbean by raising funds and responsibly directing them to the areas of greatest need.
Brooke USA accomplishes this through a holistic approach to funding which includes capacity building, sustainability programming, female empowerment and international advocacy. Brooke USA connects private philanthropists with their passion for helping relieve the suffering of working equines and their owners. Brooke USA raises funds to support a wide variety of programs for working horses, donkeys and mules to help them become (and remain) healthy and happy, now and in the long-term, which also benefits the poor families who depend on those animals to help them earn a living.
