IVU Meeting of World VegFest Leaders
established by Shrivedant Foundation supports the cause of vegetarianism and hopes to increase the number of vegetarians in Kenya. The Club endeavors to
- Promote human health
- Protect animal rights
- Preserve the environment
“The cause of vegetarianism is very dear to my heart and I have decided to devote my life to promoting it thereby saving the environment. We have encroached the forests, depleted the ozone layers, misused, abused and overused natural resources in our desire to lead a life of crass materialism. In our race to reach the top, we have shown scant respect to Mother Nature. We have become economically powerful but morally bankrupt. We must put an end to this madness, come together, conserve our natural resources so that we can leave something for the next generation and above all learn to be more compassionate towards other human beings, animals, plants- in short towards all living forms.”
