To raise funds for AKI's partner animal welfare organizations in poor countries and for AKI's Africa-Based Animal Welfare Organization Grant Program. Our Partner Organizations can use AKI funds for their priority animal welfare needs. This fills a major gap--there are so few options for fundraising for animals in these countries, and any grant funding that is available is very limited and narrow. AKI is guided by the principles that animal welfare has no boundaries; and that improving conditions for animals goes hand in hand with improving conditions for people. AKI does the due diligence on our partner organizations to ensure funds go only toward helping animals; 100% of all donations to AKI go to our Partner Organizations and Grantees.
