Vision, Mission & Objectives

Vision

A peaceful world where people of all faiths and none work together to treat animals with respect and compassion.

Mission

To create a united voice for animals from all the major faiths to bring about a world where they are treated with respect and compassion.

Objectives

  1. To provide a stronger voice for animals through the interfaith group than can be provided by many separate voices from individual faiths;
  2. To create a co-ordinated approach across the faiths to educate people on the humane treatment of animals;
  3. To create a strong and co-ordinated campaigning organisation;
  4. To provide a forum to learn from and share the wisdoms of other cultures and traditions;
  5. To disseminate that wisdom through literature, including a regular newsletter, books and orders of service, and through the internet, including a website and social media, which can also be used as a campaign tool;
  6. To inspire others through interfaith conferences and services with a major event celebrating World Animal Day on 4th October;
  7. To promote a vegetarian/vegan diet, which also embraces the issues of environmental protection, healthy lifestyles and ending world hunger, and to end animal exploitation.
