Horse as a mirror

June 2015 Desire & Give will be starting a new project ‘Horse as Mirror’.
This project is for fragile children in Holland ranging from the age of 4 to 18, who have been hurt since a very young age by unsafe situations in and around the home.

We feel deeply for these children and our charity foundation Desire & Give wants to do something about this situation.

With the help of this system, Horse as Mirror, they regain their self esteem, enabling them to move forward with confidence.
This system is not a horse riding course.
Would you like to help these children?

Our Passion
Because of unsafe situations the self esteem of these children is really low, so they continue to suffer in silence.
Our passion is to give these children the opportunity to transform and rediscover themselves as the person they were born to be.

How can this be done?
Often Companies give their personnel the opportunity via ‘Horse as Mirror’ to develop and apply their leadership abilities in every day life as well as the work place.
This system also applies to the children we would like to support.
By means of ‘Horse as Mirror’, the coach and the Local Authorities we can support these children by enabling them to take part in this unique system.
The foundation Desire & Give can give support by taking on the costs of this project.

Each child will be selected on the advise given by the local youth care services and or a local general practitioner who is aware of the situation of the child.
Often the parents have financial difficulties known to the local authorities. Because of our contact with these authorities we are in a position to offer help.

Horses, Naturel therapists 
Horses are beautiful, strong sensitive animals who show their feelings without inhibition.
A horse reacts to each individual in a different way, thus showing us our own behaviour. Mirror technique.
A horse mirrors our dysfunctional; behaviour without malice or judgement in order that we may become aware of the response this behaviour creates and will then be able to correct negative behaviour patterns.
This takes place naturally. A horse shows us how to regain our self esteem, set our boundaries and accept ourselves as we are.
Developing a child’s natural leadership can lead to a positive continuation of this project.

The future of the community lies in the hands of our children, so let’s help them.
Give them the chance to develop so that they can transform this world into a world of solidarity.

The Clothing Bank

Beside the Food Bank, Desire & amp; Also give the Clothing Bank. Because many people relinquish their used clothing to countries outside the Netherlands, there is a shortage of good second-hand clothing in our country. We therefore strive to provide the local clothing banks with good used clothing to help the people close to home to dress functionally.

Desire & amp; Give supports the clothing banks financially and also collects clothing for them

The Food Bank

One of the charities supported by Desire & amp; Give is the Food Bank. Due to the rising costs and the economic downturn, the food bank is now busier than ever. There are many people who live below the poverty line and have no money to buy food. Some have fallen into debt so far that they first cut back on their daily food supply

The Food Bank tries to help these people in need by means of food packages. That food is donated by supermarkets, bakers, private individuals and foundations such as Desire & amp; Give.

Hoogvliet DonatieWe have chosen not to offer this help by sending money, instead we opt for practical help. We buy a few hundred pieces of a food product every week in consultation and give it to the Food Bank. Both fresh products such as milk, bread, butter and vegetables, as well as long-life items such as tins with beans, jars of pasta sauce, macaroni.

Do you help us too? If you would like to make a donation or register as a food donor, please contact us!
