The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of Rs 6,000,000 ($89,392 at time of conversion) via Humane Society International to People for Animals to support its work to end the confinement of hens in battery cages.

Earlier in 2016, we recommended a series of grants to support corporate cage-free campaigns and wrote on our blog about why we see this as a promising strategy to promote farm animal welfare. The present funding, part of a new series of grants focusing on international cage-free advocacy, will support People for Animals’ work in India.

We do not plan to write in more detail about this grant at this time.
