Open Philanthropy recommended a contract of $98,500 over two years with FAI Farms to support research by Julia Lee, in collaboration with Maria Chen, on layer hen welfare in Asia. The research will involve the identification of key stakeholders that can impact layer hen welfare at each stage of life, as well as the production of a report on welfare conditions and possible welfare improvements on large-scale farms.

This follows our January 2020 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we typically do not publish pages for contractor agreements, we occasionally opt to do so.
