Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,142,000 over three years to World Animal Protection (WAP) to support re-granting to farm animal groups in Southeast Asia. Our farm animal welfare team has been impressed by WAP’s re-granting work so far, and believes this is a way to support movement-building in countries with many farmed animals but relatively fewer organizations dedicated to farmed animal welfare.

This follows our January 2020 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,200,000 over two years to World Animal Protection (WAP) to support work to advance farm animal welfare in China. World Animal Protection is supporting model pig farms to demonstrate higher welfare to large pig producers, and has secured China’s first corporate crate-free pledges for pigs. China is one of the world’s largest poultry producers, and WAP is now looking to take on similar work with a focus on chickens. WAP plans to use these funds to continue engaging with Chinese pig producers and supermarkets, and expand outreach to large-scale chicken producers and retailers.

This follows our October 2016 grant and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
