The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $245,000 to Sinergia Animal to pursue corporate campaigns across Latin America. Approximately 500 million layer hens and 2 billion broiler chickens are alive in Latin America at any time, and corporate campaigners have had some success in Latin America, securing numerous cage-free commitments in the last two years. We believe Sinergia Animal played a significant role in some of those campaigns, including some of the first wins in Argentina, Chile, and Colombia.

This is a discretionary grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
