Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of £400,000 (approximately $500,000 at the time of conversion) over three years to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) to support its work to advance farm animal welfare in Asia. The RSPCA intends to use this funding to build institutional support for farm animal welfare, develop and implement welfare standards, and award scholarships to researchers studying topics related to farm animal welfare.

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