HORSES FOR HARMONY / GALOPANDO POR LA PAZ

Hi, I am Cachito, a teacher at Horses for Harmony. Please help us fund our empathy workshops for kids in our local communities facing violence daily.

OUR PROGRAM: Our program is based on the latest empathy-building research and our expertise in Equine Therapy. The children learn to be aware of the physical and emotional states of all living beings around them and how their actions can influence and improve them. Both group and individual work will focus on practising and learning about empathy, discussion, and reflection on the nature of violence, its consequences, and the importance of eradicating it.

WHY WE USE HORSES:

Horses are often referred to as "mirror animals." They are excellent at reading body language and sensing how the person in front of them feels, making them an ideal teacher of emotional regulation. Additionally, the experience of interacting with them is impactful, given their size and presence and the emotional response they generate. The workshop is structured using the latest neuroscience findings to ensure it is stored in the long term biographical memory.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

You may have heard of Yucatan, which is very popular with tourists as it is the safest state in Mexico. Of course, that depends on your point of view. Many of my horse friends are terrified at the prospect of being trapped in a ring with a bull; we all know those who go in don't always make it back out.

Some have escaped after seeing their friends killed, humans gored, and the bull sacrificed. Fernanda, my adoptive mom and the co-founder of the project, says it isn't bad for us horses; it has a lasting negative impact on the children and our community.

BECOME AN INVESTOR:
Fernanda says, we call you investors as you are investing in the children and a more peaceful future- you will receive updates and photos from our events. This means you get to see more pictures of me!

Fernanda's dad says empathy is the ideology capable of changing the world.

Please join us in investing in a world full of more kindness, more understanding, and more empathy.
