The reasons to stop eating animals. VERITAS printed and supplied 250 PCs of books to 8 schools for the children homework.
VERITAS is working on promoting plant-based foods advocacy in Tanzania. This is a recommendable effort towards improving the health and well-being of the local communities, as well as promoting sustainable environmental practices. The Vegan Society together with VERITAS we have been able to distribute 1,500 tree seedlings in 12 schools in Kasulu for the purpose of protecting the environment from climate change.
This is wonderful when The Vegan Society and VERITAS join together on Promoting plant-based lifestyle Camping in Tanzania. During the campaigns students discovered all the variety of food in the plant-based diet and had the opportunity to prepare and taste vegan soup (mushroom soup) and other different plant-based milks (sorgho, millet and peanuts) among the highlights. We also had a special focus on the mushroom that grow in Kasulu. The Campaign will go on for the rest of the year with other workshops in these schools and with a new Partner Environment and Animal Protection Alliance of Tanzania (EAPAT). Thanks The Vegan Society for the support and to you all for the great work we do in advocating on Mother Land!
The pupils were moved to discover the vegan lifestyle and know that there are rights for animals. They appreciate our commitment to upholding animal rights and prohibiting the consumption of products of animal origin. Many of them have promised to take a week as a trial consuming only plant-based products and afterward, they will advise their parents to follow in their footsteps given the necessity because animals deserve better. They also understood that a friend protects his friend and so animals being our friends, in no way can we consider harming them. Our slogan of the day is “let’s eat plant-based products in order to have a good life, have a clean conscience and live a long life”. Let us never give up doing what is good.
About of Animal advocacy work.
Our work focuses on campaigns and programs that protect animals from all forms of cruelty through promotion of plant based diets a strategy that will reduce the demand for increased animal farming especially in cages.
Under our project ‘Free the Hen’ our mission is to end the abuse of hens through cage farming that limits their inability to practice natural behaviors like nesting, exercising and dust bathing but are subjected to high levels of stress and frustration while in cages resulting in a higher incidence of metabolic disorders and severe frustration.
We do this through encouraging Tanzanians to opt for plant based diets to reduce commercial farming of hens in cages, a practice that’s not only good for the animals but human health and the planet.
We promote animal welfare education in communities and schools. And also work with relevant government agencies and departments to advocate for better policies and guidelines towards the improvement of animal well being.
Why ‘Free the Hen’ Project
Cages limit hens ability to practice natural behaviors like nesting, exercising and dust bathing but instead they are subjected to high levels of stress and frustration It should be known that caged hens may experience increased aggression, reduced bone strength, impaired foot conditions and higher feather loss.
A world where all hens are free to nest, exercise and dust bathe.
Let’s put our hands together, celebrate together for the sake of our own health, animals and environment sustainably.Happy plant based diet to everyone 🍏🍏🍏🍏🍏🥦🥦💚🌽🧅🍠🥕🍈🍊🍍🍌🍅🍇🌶️🍆🧄🥗
VERITAS is working on promoting plant-based foods advocacy in Tanzania. This is a commendable effort towards improving the health and well-being of the local communities, as well as promoting sustainable food practices. By promoting the benefits of plant-based diets and launching initiatives like mushroom farms, VERITAS is empowering individuals to make informed choices about their food and nutrition.
This work has the potential to create a positive impact on the local communities, as well as contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly food system. It’s important to continue monitoring and evaluating the impact of these programs, as well as adapting and refining the approach as needed.
This will help to ensure that the efforts towards promoting plant-based foods advocacy in Tanzania are effective and sustainable in the long term.
Many thanks to our supporters
The Pollination Project
Voiceless: the animal protection institute
VERITAS is continuing in improving the welfare of companion pets (dogs and cats) around Kasulu Tanzania through a partnership with “Animal Kind International-AKI” through “TRAP-NEUTER-VACCINATE-RETURN APPROACH”, this is the only humane and sustainable solution to protect thousands of stray dogs and cats in Tanzania as whole, as stray dogs and cats is among of companion animal welfare issue in Tanzania, whereby higher number of these stray dogs and cats are commonly found roaming in the street randomly. The method which is used to control this population is Killing as means of controlling the overpopulation of stray companion animals, th method is usually not taking to account the welfare of dogs and cats at all, but is the only method which is practised frequently. Stray dogs and cats often live very hard and short lives, suffering from a lack of food, shelter, untreated illness, injuries, and sometimes deliberate abuse and of course, not only the welfare of these stray dogs and cats is compromised, but because they have been abandoned or born on the streets there are issues for humans too, Because they may lead to health risk to humans through the transmission of zoonotic diseases like;- (Rabies and Toxoplasmosis) or the contamination of the environment (through urine and faeces), and they may cause a public nuisance e.g. fighting and scavenging for food and also traffic accidents sometimes.
VERITAS team is super proud of the support from ANIMAL KIND INTERNATIONAL-AKI for supporting this work which have impacted so many dogs and cats out here not only these companions (dogs and cats) but also the community health as whole through Rabies vaccination to all Dogs and cats During this ongoing TNVR program which give our community assuarance of safety from Rabies since dogs and cats are vaccinated.
Many thanks to our partners Animal-Kind International
