Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $29,886 over two years to Mount Kenya University to support the implementation of a masters degree program in farm animal welfare science, led by Professor Maina Ngotho. Open Philanthropy’s farm animal welfare team believes that the program will help develop farm animal welfare expertise and capacity in Kenya and across Africa. This funding is intended to cover costs related to course resources and student research projects.
This falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of farm animal welfare.
The grant amount has been updated to reflect $137,880 in funds returned to us in November 2022.
