Compassion in World Farming (South Africa) falls under the umbrella of The Humane Education Trust which supplies a magazine entitled Animal Voice, as well as educational resources to schools, consumers and the public at large. Our work is holistic and includes the well-being of children, as much as of animals. In addition, we appeal to consumers to make a difference to our planet through their buying power.  Only with your help can we achieve better lives for farmed animals. Become part of this revolution towards ‘Lives worth Living’ by making a monthly donation, a once-off donation, fund raising, leaving a gift in your will or giving a gift in memory of a loved one. 


Every donation received is spent wisely and valued by us. Your generous support will help us to prevent the cruelty and abuse that farm animals across South Africa are subjected to.

We have a three-pronged approach:

Animal Voice magazine  is a voice for the voiceless.  We expose the truth behind animal injustices in South Africa, as well as shine a light on the brave activists who  make a difference  to the lives of animals.  Animal Voice is the only national magazine in South Africa dedicated to achieving better lives for farmed animals through consumer awareness and their buying power.


Humane Education’s Caring Classrooms  programme provides online resources for downloading, suitable for learners in grades R - 7.  The resources are aimed at awakening a sense of empathy and developing core values.  By rekindling the spirit of care and respect for all life, learners find a new sense of  self-esteem and confidence. Our programme is curriculum-aligned and SETA accredited.   “How we treat animals and how we treat each other are two stems that grow from the same root. If there are thorns of neglect, contempt or cruelty on one, we can be sure to find them  on the other”  - Ronald Swartz.


Compassion in World Farming (South Africa) concentrates on the welfare of farmed animals. We work at government and retail level to achieve improvements for farmed animals and put an end to cruel factory farming. We create awareness about industrialised farming, empowering consumers  to make a difference through their buying power. We engage industry, farmer organizations and retailers in finding solutions and alternatives to the inhumane system of factory farming.   In doing so we bring about better lives for farmed animals.

As with any social change in the annals of history, one of the key elements of change is the creation of awareness. When enough people know enough about the issues at hand, change becomes not just called for, but inevitable.

Animal Voice and Compassion in World Farming (SA) do not offer immediate relief to the suffering of animals in any given situation. We are not inspectors. This vital function falls on animal welfare organisations around South Africa.

Our function is to raise social awareness, through the peaceful dissemination of information, that our cruel and disrespectful treatment of animals is abhorrent, unjust, indefensible and ultimately in conflict with all that we, as humans, believe ourselves to be. Inhumane treatment of those at our mercy, destroys our very humanity. This is why we adhere only to the facts so that our professionalism in exposing the reality of the suffering that animals face, can never be put in doubt.

We work towards social change at every level.

It is also why we put so much effort into humane education, teaching our learners basic principles such as the Five Freedoms for Animals.
