Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $100,000 to Fórum Nacional de Proteção e Defesa Animal (FNPDA) to support work campaigning to reduce the use of battery cages for layer hens and gestation crates for pigs in Brazil. Using our August 2018 funding, FNPDA secured multiple crate- and cage-free corporate pledges and published a tracker of the implementation of corporate pledges.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
