Mission: Gentle World’s core purpose is to help build a more peaceful society, by educating the public about the reasons for being vegan, the benefits of vegan living, and how to go about making such a transition. All our members volunteer their time, as we believe that embracing the vegan ideal is nothing less than humanity’s next evolutionary step and our greatest hope for real peace on earth.
Results: Through our online educational resources, cooking classes, live in visitor program, seminars and individual consultations we have been able to help thousands of people become vegan and ultimately inspire thousands more to take this important step on the path to a sustainable and more peaceful existence.
Target demographics: people of all ages and from all walks of life
Geographic areas served: Hawaii and New Zealand
Programs: welcoming guests to participate in our live-in visitor program, and creating high-quality content for our educational website, our volunteers provide seminars, private consultations, cooking classes, and wholesome meals for interested participants and those in need.
With the beginning of 2020 I decided to step into the world of Gentle World. A truly unique experience which finally convinced me to go vegan. Thanks to the people at this welcoming and warm place I learned not only more about compassion, hospitality and a healthy diet but also about an alternative lifestyle which is worth striving for. It was a real pleasure helping them with their garden work and food preparations while seeing how life beyond all the touristy temptations on Hawai'i actually feels like. For all that I'm truly grateful and I hope many more people will have the chance to see this beautiful place by themselves and learn what respect, compassion, and mindfulness really means.
