The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $120,000 to People for Animals (PFA) via Humane Society International to support new farm animal welfare work in India over the next two years. We are excited about the grant primarily because of PFA’s influence and network; our Program Officer for Farm Animal Welfare, Lewis Bollard’s, confidence in PFA’s relevant leadership; and the potential opportunity we see in India—one of the world’s largest producers of eggs, fish, and chicken—to encourage farm animal welfare reforms and advocacy. This grant was one of five recent grants recommended to various organizations supporting farm animal welfare activities in India.
