Mission

World Vegan Vision is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, founded in 1992 as Vegetarian Vision in New York, NY, with the mission to promote vegetarianism and now veganism among the people of the world. The organization serves as a resource network and a think-tank for vegans worldwide, with the objective of a healthy future for all of mankind and planet earth. We aim to serve everyone and collaborate with other vegan/vegetarian organizations to strengthen the cause.

Here is a short video on the progress of World Vegan Vision over the 25+ years.

The mission of World Vegan Vision is to promote, encourage and inspire people to become Vegan or Vegetarian and provide educational information on the benefits of various Vegan or Vegetarian lifestyle.

Through a pool of dedicated volunteer members the organization serves all existing and aspiring vegans and vegetarians. It is a non-partisan, apolitical group that serves anyone regardless of race, color or national origin.

The founder of World Vegan Vision Mr. Harshad K. Shah has burning a desire to make people healthy by adopting a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. He is a visionary and a firm believer in being healthy using vegan foods and in saving animals from abuse and slaughter for use as food.

Over the last twenty five plus years, World Vegan Vision has grown to a large membership spread across the USA and India. The dedication of our  patrons, life members, annual members and active volunteers have contributed to the success and growth this organization.

Some highlights of past events organized by World Vegan Vision are worth a mention here. Our first major event was held in 1996, the International Vegetarian Food Festival was held in New York Coliseum. Almost 17,000 people attended this event and 150 stalls filled up the coliseum.

In 1998, a similar Food Festival was held at New York Armory with repeat performance. Similar events were organized utilizing speakers, exhibits and Vegetarian Cruises. These activities have created greater awareness and conversion of many new vegetarians.

Vegetarian Vision sends out Quarterly Health News Letters, invite nationally recognized speakers and authorities on speaking engagement, educating people the benefits of being Vegetarian. Every year at our Annual Thanksgiving dinner event highlights updates our activities, unites members, presents new ideas, and a celebrity speaker is invited to encourage healthy life style by being vegetarian.

During the past many years, we have collaborated with various local vegetarian organizations, supported their cause and also helped teacher education programs on vegetarian benefits. All these have progressively translated in to adoption of vegetarian food in some elementary schools.

This is a collaborative achievement with other organizations in the tri-state area. We had arranged speakers on yoga, breathing techniques, vegetarian recipes and vegetarian cooking demonstrations. All the activities of World Vegan Vision are supported by volunteers who devote their time.
