Compassion in World Farming (CIWF)
Compassion in World Farming International was founded in 1967 in England by a British farmer who became horrified by the development of intensive factory farming. Over 50 years ago he decided to make a difference and take a stand against this farming system. In his lifetime, Peter Roberts saw the demise of veal crates and gestation crates in the UK, and in Europe achieved recognition that animals are sentient beings.
Compassion in World Farming US was started in 2012
and since then campaigns peacefully to end all factory farming practices in the
US envisioning a world where farmed animals are treated with compassion and
respect. Compassion in World Farming US advocates on behalf of all
areas that are detrimentally impacted by factory farming, including: animals,
the environment, public health, and community and workers’ justice.
The debate about food security, sustainability and
safety has never been more urgent. Whilst veganism and flexitarianism are
rising trends – animal welfare on factory farms worldwide is a desolate
reflection on our society. As the needs of our programmes grow, we need to work
with more people and institutions across the globe to enable the success of our
programmes. And consequently, we are looking for a Director of Development - Major Giving and
Philanthropic Partnerships (USA) to play a vital role in the future funding of Compassion
