Stella recognised the need for horse and donkey welfare in the CRT area
and set up a CRT community development project to try and cater for
this. Shortly afterwards her sister, Heather Armstrong, offered to help
and through her efforts The Gambia Horse and Donkey Trust, a registered
UK charity was established which Heather continues to run from her home
in UK. The objects of the Trust are to reduce rural poverty by
increasing productivity of working horses and donkeys through animal
welfare and management education.
