Global Animal Advocacy Grants
In partnership with A Well Fed World, we made the following grants to some of our most successful and promising global animal advocacy projects.
A major problem with green leafy vegetables and spices like bitter leaf (Vernonia amydalina), Okongobong (Telifera occidentalis), Erru (Gnetum africanum), capsicum pepper and mushrooms is that they are seasonal and highly perishable. During the pick season they are often sold at give-away prices and some are simply wasted in the [...]
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.
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.
The Ukama Community Foundation currently feeds 120 children per day with wholesome nutritious home cooked meals. Kids in feeding scheme are from Vrygrond, one of the poorest townships in South Africa. Along with the community leaders this enables children to develop early childhood learning and nutrition in order to give them a better start in life. In 2017 we will be increasing our outreach to almost 200 children. The work we are doing in this community is enabling feeding, nutrition, support and development of children who come from families living on around $2 per day.
Eyes Wide Open is a community outreach project that aims to expose the suffering of farmed animals in India, and encourage people to adopt a vegan lifestyle. The funds will be used to purchase video screening equipment which will be used to screen four minute films based on undercover investigations of slaughterhouses and dairies, thus sensitizing viewers about reducing their consumption of animal products.
