Award Date

To support international advocacy to end the confinement of hens in battery cages.
Topic (focus area) 

Published: March 2017

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of €102,000 ($111,986 at time of conversion) over two years to the Albert Schweitzer Foundation to support its work to end the confinement of hens in battery cages.

In early 2016, we recommended a series of grants to support corporate cage-free campaigns and wrote on our blog about why we see this as a promising strategy to promote farm animal welfare. The present funding, part of a new series of grants focusing on international cage-free advocacy, will support Albert Schweitzer’s work in Poland.
