Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $138,000 over two years to World Animal Protection to support Dr. Maina Ngotho’s work in Nyeri County, Kenya. Dr. Ngotho, a lecturer at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, will work with the Nyeri County Antimicrobial Stewardship Interagency Committee to measure the impact of improved animal welfare in local dairy, pig, and aquaculture farms. Dr. Ngotho and his team also aim to develop a high-compliance demonstration farm that could then be upscaled nationally.

This falls within Open Philanthropy’s focus area of farm animal welfare.
