The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a contract with Asia Research & Engagement (ARE) for $340,875 over two years to support corporate outreach for farm animal welfare reforms. ARE plans to work with banks and investors to secure corporate commitments in China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare. This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we do not typically publish pages for contractor agreements, we chose to write about this funding because we view it as conceptually similar to an ordinary grant, despite its structure as a contract due to logistical constraints.
