Educational project for persons with “ differences”.



1         “Different” people with good and average levels of independence (child or adult)

2        Children with behavioural problems


Of a peaceful nature, the donkey knows how to take its time and share it out.  People say it is stubborn but if its character protects it from our demands, then it is only so as to teach us to respect each other’s rhythms better.


The donkey is an extremely gentle animal and its contact with the handicapped is a fantastic opportunity for them. 


A strong relationship is built up between the donkey and these “different” children or adults because the donkey does not stop to consider the IQ of the person in front of it.


It simply accepts the affection of the handicapped, and they in turn often find themselves transformed by this encounter.


The donkey doesn't react in the same way as a horse.  Smaller and much less frisky than a horse, it differs by its strong personality.  It makes us negotiate and respect it.  Before obeying external orders, it follows its own rhythm.  You will not get far trying to dominate it.  It is better to try to make friends with it, which has more effect.  The relationship with the donkey is built upon confidence.  This link is more a partnership than seeking submission.  This is a great way to gain socialization, which turns its back on violence.


All these characteristics fully justify why we might associate the donkey with work around childhood problems: abandonment, lack of security, anxiety, violence, and domination.


Thus we lay down the foundations of our welcome and the meaning of our actions, this project allows us to best co-ordinate our objectives and methods with those of each individuals’ project.
