IMPORTANT: TVA no longer promotes Vegetarianism, Animal Welfare and Single Issue campaigns like Ban on Fur, Humane meat nonsense, Cage Free nonsense. Click here to know why. TVA believes that Veganism is not just a matter of reducing suffering; it’s a matter of fundamental moral justice. It is what we owe to those who, like us, value their lives and who want to continue to live.
TVA's vegan outreach program is aimed at educating the public on Veganism and the importance of nonviolence. During the program TVA also educates the public on rabies and other diseases related to companion animals. TVA has translated and dubbed the documentary EARTHLING in Tibetan which is also screened during the presentation.
The 10 Day Great Nyingma Monlam started on Jan 10th at Bodh Gaya. TVA put up a stall near the Main Boudh Temple during the 10 day buddhist congregation to educate the devotees on veganism and animal rights. TVA also took time to give medical care to sick and injured animals around the temple.
In an interview with Gary Francione on TeleSUR, “Days of Revolt” host Chris Hedges and the longtime animal rights activist discuss the impact of the animal agriculture industry on the ecosystem, the issues critics use to challenge veganism and whether being a vegan can be described as a moral choice.

TVA organized Free Anti Rabies Vaccination and public education program in Bylakuppe on September 28th 2014. The program was well received by the locals and many turned up for vaccinations as well as consultation.
As always, TVA made sure its Vegan message heard during the 2014 Kalachakra in Leh Ladakh. Kalachakra is the biggest Buddhist event where thousands of Buddhists around the world attend the teachings and initiations.
The Chairman of Bylakuppe Lugsam Tibetan Settlement Mr. Karma Damdul inaugurates TVA's 'We CARE' Animal Rescue Clinic.
