About the Organisation
Welfare Matters (formerly Effective Altruism Singapore) is dedicated to expanding the farmed animal protection movement in Southeast Asia. Our programmes inspire and support individuals to:
Improve farmed animal welfare,
Reduce the consumption of farmed animal products, and
Help accelerate the development of alternative proteins.
We aim to support and strengthen the farmed animal protection community in culturally sensitive and locally relevant ways, to strive for a more humane and sustainable food system in Southeast Asia.
The Southeast Asia Farm Animal Welfare Fellowship (SEAFAWF) is a project under Welfare Matters (previously known as Effective Altruism Singapore). The project’s aim is to build up a community and network of farmed animal advocates in the region. Through our programmes, we seek to find and empower motivated individuals to engage in a career that can create a more sustainable and humane food system in Southeast Asia, particularly in Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore.
