Impact Grants for Animal Advocacy

In partnership with A Well Fed World, we made the following grants to some of our most successful and promising animal advocacy projects around the world.

Kindred Spirits Care Farm, the Teaching Circle, Impact Grant 2016


We are going to build a Teaching Circle at the center of our organic garden mandala. This Teaching Circle will be a ring-shaped wooden planter with benches and overhead shade to make learners comfortable while they learn about plant based diets, the joys of growing food and how farm animals are friends, therapists, and individuals, not food. This grant will buy the materials to create this Teaching Circle, and with it we will be able to help people see, smell, taste and fully experience the truth we teach. This Teaching Circle will help change lives and we are very grateful.

Kate Luke, Be The Change Booklets, Impact Grant 2016


We are creating a series of booklets. The booklets tell the story of a particular resident of Little Oak Sanctuary, providing an opportunity for the reader to identify with that animal as an individual. Information is then provided about the issues that face those animals and further information on how people can BE THE CHANGE for that animal - ie what changes one can implement in ones life that will help that species. We have produced a booklet on Pigs, Dairy Cows, and Sheep and this impact grant will allow us to produce a booklet on Poultry and Horses.
