The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $472,864 over two years to Otwarte Klatki to support farm animal welfare campaigns and organizational capacity building in Poland and Ukraine. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on farm animal welfare.
Otwarte Klatki is a Polish animal rights organization focused on preventing the suffering of animals. This funding will allow Otwarte Klatki to launch broiler chicken welfare campaigns in Poland and cage-free campaigns in Ukraine, as well as support expenses related to a planned merger with the Danish animal rights organization, Anima.
Open Philanthropy's Program Officer for Farm Animal Welfare, Lewis Bollard, is excited to support Otwarte Klatki due to its track record building a strong grassroots movement and securing cage-free successes in a challenging political environment; his impression of its leadership team; and the organization’s strategic alignment with Open Philanthropy's goal to build a stronger farm animal welfare movement in Europe.
