Vegan Village Society Inspires Over 92,000 People to Embrace Plant-Based Diets & Animal Welfare

RUBANDA – Vegan Village Society, a non-profit organization based in Uganda, is making significant strides in transforming dietary habits and advocating for Animal Welfare.

Since its inception in 2020, the organization has achieved a remarkable milestone, inspiring 92,307 individuals to embrace plant-based diets.

This noteworthy accomplishment was announced by Mr. Tumukunde Lyth, the Head of Programs at Vegan Village Society, during an engagement with the media at their Rubanda district office on Wednesday.

Mr. Lyth recounted the organization’s humble beginnings as a small initiative focused on providing women’s groups with vegetable seeds and raising awareness about animal welfare in schools, churches, and public spaces.

Over time, the organization’s impact has flourished, expanding its scope to encompass Bufundi sub-county and Kacereere Town council.

Mr. Lyth shared that despite not having secured long-term backers, the organization has consistently supported 50 women’s groups each season by providing them with vegetable seeds. Additionally, they have conducted awareness campaigns to foster a culture of compassion within the community.

Presently, the organization sustains 25 groups with financial assistance from well-wishers. A notable upcoming endeavor is the Vegan Festival scheduled for December 2023.

This two-day event aims to enhance public understanding of the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle and promote humane treatment of animals within society.

While the exact date remains undecided due to financial constraints, Mr. Bob Rumanzi, the Executive Director of Vegan Village Society, affirmed the event’s existence and expressed hope to confirm the date once adequate funding is secured.
