The Animal Protectors Grant 2009 is open for application
Category : animalwelfare
Do you have a brilliant idea that will help animals here in Singapore and need some funding to help get it started? Well any group of at least three individuals (including students) now has some help - the Singapore Animal Welfare Symposium (SAWS) once again invites proposals for a project that will have a positive impact on animal welfare here in Singapore.
The grant, which awards up to S$1,500, is sponsored by the Lee Foundation. Applications are subjected to a selection and interview process, and in 2008, nine grants were awarded. The results which were shared with audience members during SAWS2009 were extremely encouraging! They included:
- the production of educational children's books on animal protection,
- a documentary on animal welfare which has been distributed to primary schools,
- a set of illegal wildlife trade posters which are now being displayed in 84 pet shops,
- support for sterilisation programmes,
- outreach on stray cat management at East Coast Park,
- addressing human-long-tailed macaque conflict with surveys, education and creatively designed signs and
- the awakening of awareness about animal welfare issues amongst junior college students
- Application deadline: 31st July 2009
- Interview and selection process: Aug 2009
- Results announced: last week of August 2009
- Project duration: can be an ongoing project but funding ends by April 2010.
- Presentaton: May 2010, at the 3rd Singapore Animal Welfare Symposium.
