WHO WE ARE
The AfA Coalition is comprised of member organisations and supported by a huge network of supporting organisations and as such represents millions of like-minded supporters across the globe. The aim and purpose of the coalition is to work together to tackle issues across Asia as one united voice.
AfA welcomes new animal welfare organisations into this supporting network. To join the free network please complete the simple application form HERE
WHAT WE DO
The coalition is an important voice in the world of animal welfare, and there is no other network as large as AfA working collectively on issues in Asia.
The AfA facilitates the raising awareness of issues requiring attention and action by local and international NGOs as well as information and resource sharing; whilst supporting and encouraging collaboration to tackle some of the most pressing animal welfare issues in the region.
AfA raises appeals targeting specific animal welfare concerns, either regarding a broader issue or aimed at a particular facility or addressing a specific incident. These letters are authored by animal welfare experts from within the coalition, citing scientific evidence or legal & ethical guidelines, and always based on reports and evidence submitted by members or trusted partners. Often the animal welfare issues we address are sent to us by a member of our network of supporting organisations. In certain circumstances, such as political sensitivities, the NGO does not wish to be named as the instigator OR simply wishes assistance and support in tackling the issue.
Once drafted, the appeal letters are circulated to all 23 coalition members first for sign-off and then to our supporting organisations network for the option to add their support. They are then sent to the facility, authority or government department directly from the coalition. The instigating NGO who raised the issue initially always has the option of being named or remaining anonymous.
Having such a strong coalition of member organisations and an average of 200 supporting organisations adding their support to each of our appeal letters can have great impact, especially when our letter is addressed to government officials highlighting the level of global public scrutiny.
As a supporting organisation you will receive our appeal letters with the option to join hundreds of other NGOs adding their name and logo to the letters.
THE ASIA FOR ANIMALS CONFERENCE
Following the 2011 Asia for Animals conference, the coalition was formed to facilitate on-going conversations between NGOs and give them a collective voice from the smallest to the largest welfare issues. The bi-annual conference, the largest of its kind in Asia, continues to evolve as a forum for issues to be aired and a place for relationships to be launched. Each conference has a specific organisation chosen to host and manage the event.
If your organisation wishes to apply to host an AfA conference please email firstname.lastname@example.org
OUR INTERNAL DATABASE, PUBLIC DIRECTORY AND FORUM
When you join the network as a supporting organisation you will be automatically added to our internal database and sent a password to a private section of our website where you can view the whole network (note: contact details are not shared)
You will also be given the option of joining the public directory by providing us with a contact and email address for your organisation so that members of the public can contact you directly to discuss any issues they are concerned about. Our public directory acts as a filter to allow the public to go directly to the source organisation they wish to support.
We also have a private discussion forum open only to member organisations of our network to facilitate discussions on a huge variety of animal welfare issues. It can be accessed from your log in to our website.
This forum facilitates the sharing of information with member organisations and assists the coalition in answering queries and in directing members of the public and other NGOs to the correct organisation working on the issue.
You will be sent instructions on joining the forum once you have joined the network.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU JOIN
After you have completed the form, you will be sent a welcome email and then automatically added to the internal database. The welcome email will include a username and password to access the private section of our website where you will be able to see your listing and your logo as well as the other network members.
If you have also chosen to be listed on the public directory your organisation will show up HERE
You will be provided with instructions for joining the private discussion forum.
Updating your details
If there are any amendments please email them to email@example.com
It is imperative that the internal database listing and your public directory listing for your organisation and contacts are kept up to date.
You will then start to receive regular emails from the coalition asking if your organisation wishes to support the appeals. If you give your support, following the deadline, your organisation will be automatically listed in the letters with your organisation name and logo.
Asking for help
If your organisation has an animal welfare issue in Asia that you feel the coalition could help to support please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we cannot guarantee that we can support every issue and that appeal requests will be handled on a case by case basis.
The coalition shares information surrounding our appeal letters and wider animal issues in Asia on ournew section of our website and also on social media channels; facebook, twitter and instagram. We encourage all of you to follow our pages and more importantly share the information.
