The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of 71,095,000 INR ($1,039,124 at the time of conversion) over two years to Humane Society International India (HSI India) to support public policy change, organizing, and the work of People for Animals. The groups intend to use these funds to continue commissioning studies on the impact of factory farming in India and potential policy solutions, as well as outreach, coalition-building, litigation, and policy.

This follows our May 2017 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
