The Open Philanthropy Project awarded a grant of $120,000 to People for Animals (PFA) via Humane Society International to support new farm animal welfare work in India over the next two years. This grant falls within Open Philanthropy's work on farm animal welfare.
PFA is an Indian organization that focuses on many different aspects of animal welfare. Open Philanthropy is excited about the grant primarily because of PFA’s influence and network; the confidence Lewis Bollard (Open Philanthropy's Program Officer for Farm Animal Welfare) has in PFA’s relevant leadership; and the potential opportunity Open Philanthropy sees in India—one of the world’s largest producers of eggs, fish, and chicken—to encourage farm animal welfare reforms and advocacy. This grant was one of five recent grants made to various organizations supporting farm animal welfare activities in India.
