Jeanne Marchig Centre — Farm Animal Welfare Advocacy in East Asia and the Philippines

Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $555,000 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 East Asia. The Centre plans to continue hosting workshops for pig producers, begin poultry workshops (focusing specifically on retailers), and develop animal welfare material for academics. It also plans to expand its model into the Philippines, recruiting a farmed animal welfare PhD student and delivering training and workshops to pig and poultry producers.

This follows our February 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
