Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of ₩318,000,000 ($267,723 at the time of conversion) over two years to Animal Welfare Awareness, Research, and Education (AWARE) to support work on pig welfare reforms in South Korea. AWARE identified pig welfare as a promising policy reform opportunity following our October 2020 support. This funding is intended to support the implementation of a sow stall ban and the creation of a welfare standard assessment for pigs.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
