The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of £277,000 ($368,188.40 at time of conversion) over two years to the Jeanne Marchig International Centre for Animal Welfare Education at the University of Edinburgh to support its work to improve farm animal welfare in China. The Centre plans to use these funds to continue hosting workshops for Chinese pig and poultry producers and to fund a promising Chinese farm animal welfare PhD to study at Edinburgh.

This follows our March 2017 grant and falls within our farm animal welfare.
