Personal Ponies specifically benefits differently-able children by offering a small pony for life use at no charge. Our program is based on the concept of caring by enriching the lives of children.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
At the time Personal Ponies Ltd was founded, there seemed to have been a very real lack of attention to the needs of young children with special needs and there was an absence of suitable small-sized equines bred just for them. Knowing that these children need attention and ways to feel empowered, Personal Ponies grew and is growing. Our commitment is that of service — most especially to those who need caring the most — the children who are differently able in our world.
How will this project solve this problem?
Personal Ponies Ltd is 100% volunteer. No one is paid and we never charge for our service. Funds are needed at times to support our families and to get our ponies to the children that need them. All funds raised go directly to this effort.
Potential Long Term Impact
Personal Ponies Ltd touches lives and is a model for the future. Every community needs a program that asks nothing in return.The program grew from 2 ponies in NY to1800 in almost every state in the US with 1000s of volunteers touching lives.
