Since 2007, Animal-Kind International has been raising money for and visibility of animal welfare organizations in resource-poor countries with a focus on those in Africa and a secondary focus on Latin America and the Caribbean region.
We support 10 animal welfare Partner Organizations in Uganda (2 partners), Tanzania, Ghana, Liberia, South Sudan, Namibia, Honduras, Jamaica, and Armenia. Our Partner Organizations receive ongoing funding as long as they comply with our requirements for transparency and accountability. Our Partners can use AKI funds for their priority needs-we don't dictate how they use our funds as long as they are for animal welfare purposes. In 2018, we expanded our reach by starting the Africa-Based Animal Welfare Organization Grant Program. In both 2018 and 2019 we supported 8 grant recipients. Our 3rd annual grant program (2020) supports 9 animal welfare organizations in Egypt, Kenya, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo (2 grantees), Zimbabwe, Zambia, Nigeria, and South Africa. Grantees receive funding for specific projects. We help strengthen animal welfare organizations in Africa by providing technical, administrative, and fundraising support.
