Who runs the program
The program is entirely volunteer run, by the VEA committee and our team of around fifty volunteers!
How are funds used?
100% of money contributed to VEA’S education program is used for the costs of putting on our free education program and events.
View our financial records
We budget $400 for each event to pay for:
* Venue hire
* Advertising, to draw a crowd
* Food samples for the food tasting table
With a lot of promotional work, we consistently attract an audience of over 100 people to each event – most of them non-vegans!
These events (and educational program) are HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL at educating about animal issues and inspiring people to become vegan. So far at each event around 25% of non-vegan attendees sign up to our 30 Day Vegan Challenge on the night! For most attendees, these events are the FIRST time they have seriously examined their choices in relation to animals, our environment and their health. We have a terrific team of VEA members who help out at these events, with talking to the vegan-curious guests, answering their many questions and giving them encouragement and support in making the lifestyle transition. We find that after hearing a short talk then the 90 min film, people are VERY keen to have a long chat and have a genuine readiness to learn and really appreciate the support and guidance that our members can provide in helping make kinder, greener, healthier choices!
Thanks for helping us educate and bring awareness for change!
