Katie Cantrell: Presenting the Realities of Food Sustainability and Animal Welfare

Welcome to our program “Katie Cantrell: Presenting the Realities of Food Sustainability and Animal Welfare,” that introduces an admirable American vegan activist and the non-profit organization she created, the Factory Farming Awareness Coalition (FFAC). The Coalition’s mission is to inform and empower the people to save animals and the environment, as well as highlight the benefits we can gain by changing our everyday food choices. Katie and other FFAC members have made 2,000-plus presentations, which are free of charge and last for about 45 minutes. Over the years, the non-profit has reached over 111,000 people. FFAC wants to help create an informed consumer who will demand plant-based products because they have a basic understanding of where food comes from and highly value a sustainable food system.

Hillside Animal Sanctuary: A Countryside Paradise

00:13:29

Hillside Animal Sanctuary: A Countryside Paradise

In 1995, Wendy Valentine established the Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Frettenham, Norwich, UK, after seeing the enormous suffering of egg-laying hens in the poultry industry. From the beginning, Ms. Valentine has campaigned against factory farms and done her utmost to help the victims of their heartless operations. In addition to rescuing animals, she works to raise awareness of the constant agony of the animals on the farms. Her selfless love and concern for animals was already well known. Hillside’s growth over the years was made possible by the generosity of a sympathetic public. We have good hearts and instinctively know how to treat animals with love and respect. When this translates into adopting a vegan diet, we benefit our animal co-inhabitants, ourselves, and the whole planet.

Happy Supreme Master Ching Hai Day! Part 1 of 2

Our program “Happy Supreme Master Ching Hai Day! Part 1 of 2,” celebrates the 26th anniversary of a very special occasion. On February 22, 1994, a grand event was held in Chicago, Illinois, USA, and Master was honored by the World Cultural Communication Association and the governors of the six flood-affected states who proclaimed February 22 as “Supreme Master Ching Hai Day.” But each initiate has his or her own special feelings about the meaning of Supreme Master Ching Hai Day. “Supreme Master Ching Hai Day is Master’s shining example of love in action that has helped me open and expand my love and care for others, animals, plants, and the environment. Following Master’s examples of love in action, I experienced contentment, joy, and peace in my soul.” “A day to remind us To always walk in love, To live our life in a saintly way, Helping others as we may, Today is a joyous day My soul is reborn, my spirit renewed.”

Planting Benevolent Seeds in Children's Hearts – Nepal's Shree Lho Basic School, Part 2 of 2

Planting Benevolent Seeds in Children's Hearts – Nepal's Shree Lho Basic School, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue to discover additional attributes of this institution and the great works of the teachers who look after youngsters. The Reverend Sonam Chhiling Lama shared with us the importance of daily prayers in student life. “We always do our morning prayers and worship. The main purpose of morning prayers and rites is to make our students wiser and to pay attention to the righteous teachings that guide us.” One joyful result of the school’s establishment is that it has brought local villages closer together. “We sometimes organize community service events. During these events, some people come from the upper hills, while some from the lower villages and they gather together and peacefully socialize during these programs, and cooperate with each other. This is how this school has contributed to our community.” Currently, the Shree Lho Basic School teaches through the 7th grade. However, it will soon expand and eventually serve students through the 10th grade.

Prison Animal Programs: Transforming Lives through Love

Prison Animal Programs: Transforming Lives through Love

Some correctional facilities offer animal-assisted therapy as a form of treatment to selected inmates who demonstrate good behavior. Today, we find out about the benefits of these programs, how they work, and why they have been proven effective. In Australia, the Queensland Corrective Services runs the minimum-security Palen Creek Correctional Centre. The Centre works with a program that finds homes for greyhounds. Liam the greyhound was fostered by an inmate so he would become accustomed to life as an animal companion. Let’s now hear from Liam’s foster father at the Centre regarding his experiences as a program participant. “He’s also never judgmental; he’s happy no matter what your mood is and what you’re doing. So he’s happy to cruise around and smile and be with you. I think also having an animal involved in this program helps with the communication between officers and inmates.” Animals love us for who we are. Some animals even can touch individuals who do not show emotion, including the inmates sometimes referred to as the “tough guys” in incarceration facilities. Dogs and cats can help to teach prisoners about care and gentleness. Correctional facility-based animal programs save the lives of animals and aid inmates in growing in humanity and expanding their personal development.

Master Ayub's Park School: Change Starts from Within

In Pakistan’s capital of Islamabad, there is a unique school where disadvantaged students attend classes while sitting on the ground in a park. This is an open-air place of learning established by Master Ayub. Today, the open-air classroom has grown into an institution with more than 250 students. The school has the motto “Change Starts from Within.” Master Ayub believes that youngsters should not be forced to drop out of school to work. He is also concerned that street children can fall under bad influences and be led astray. His classes fill a need for those children who have no opportunity to attend school otherwise. In addition, the educator feels that we should give aid without expecting or wanting anything in return. He received a civil honor called the Pride of Performance Award from the government of Pakistan to acknowledge his extraordinary public service and contributions to education.
