We knew when coming to India that a huge percentage of the population was vegetarian and many different cultures in India had respect for animals significantly different from that seen in the West. However, we had no idea how animals would be treated on a day to day basis but wanted to keep an eye out and try to get a sense of what an animal's life is like and particularly how farm animals might be treated in India. That said, the following are informal observations based mostly on walks and travelling we have done for purposes not related to animal welfare. We can imagine our views changing over the rest of the time we are here.
Charity Entrepreneurship has been running for about one month so far with intentions to complete our shallow intervention research in two months (by the start of March). In this time we have also moved to India, which slowed down our research considerably over the first week. We feel as though we are roughly on pace, although we might not fully complete this section until mid-March.
