Project 9: Pegasus Riding for the Disabled, ACT
Pegasus is a not-for-profit community organisation in ACT that provides equestrian activities for people with disabilities. Pegasus brings horses and people together to achieve their potential. Apart from being fun, horse riding helps to improve co-ordination, balance, muscle development and fitness. It also boosts personal confidence, self-esteem, communication skills, leadership and trust.
This proved to be a very popular project due to strong community regard for Pegasus. It was fully funded in just 11 days entirely from donations, and was the first to be funded without any assistance from loan repayments (except for our first project of course).

* The MWh figure is the amount of grid electricity avoided by solar electricity generation and energy efficiency measures. The resultant reductions in carbon emissions can be visualised as an equivalent number of average households switching from grid electricity to 100% renewable electricity, noting that the subsequent projects have been avoiding grid electricity for less time than the original project.
This project has been fully funded – Thank you!
