Children Taught to Be Kind to Animals at School

If this were the consensus of most schools—rather than the preservative-ridden frozen beef patties and vivisection promotion in biology class—we would certainly be raising much more compassionate, aware children.

In India, a program based on kindness toward animals is launching in 25 select city schools. Not only does the program teach about how important it is to be kind toward animals and the benefits of vegetarianism; it also establishes a connection between vegetarianism and the environment, something that is usually not even touched upon in most Western classrooms.
