Mission Statement

ANAW-USA partners with Africa Network for Animal Welfare providing financial resources, technical capacity, assistance, and volunteers to advance the inseparable welfare of animals, humans and communities.

Organization History

ANAW-USA grew out of a friendship between two people, one representing Kenya and the other the United States. For the last two decade, its sister organization, ANAW-Africa, has been a leading voice for animal welfare in East Africa. As a result of ANAW's advocacy, for example, in 2014 ANAW and partners stopped the government from building a road that would bi-sect the Serengeti a World Heritage site and migration corridor for millions of animals traveling between Kenya and Tanzania. Currently, ANAW is advocating to stop the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway through the Nairobi National Park and ending the Donkey Skin Trade. Additionally, ANAW is facilitating dialogue on wildlife and environmental crime amongst law enforcers, legal officers, customs, wildlife conservation authorities, and intelligence agencies.


ANAW is one of the most important independent nongovernmental programs in Kenya. It is an honor to serve with them. Nehemiah Rotich, President of the board, ANAW and past director of Kenya Wildlife Service.
