India: Kindness Kids launched in Mysore

Prashanth Krishna, the CEO of Kindness Kids, made friends with a calf at the beginning of an orientation workshop for teachers attending the launch of the Kindness Kids program in Mysore, Karnataka, on November 7, 2012.

Kindness Kids, a project of the C.P. Ramaswamy Aiyar Foundation, sponsored by the Winsome Constance Kindness Trust, Australia, fosters compassion towards animals in school children, giving them an insight into the harm done by factory farming to both animals and the environment, and encouraging a vegetarian diet.

First the teachers are given an overview of the program and its aims so that they will be able to teach the students effectively.

Last August, in Bangalore, 85 teachers from 20 schools attended a similar workshop, preparing them to guide their students toward greater sensitivity and understanding of animals. The Kindness Kids program is also well underway in Chennai, Tirupathi, and Hyderabad, reaching thousands of children with the message of kindness to animals.
