Schoolchildren love bonding with the animals they meet at Animal Rahat sanctuaries.

Students from an orphanage in Maharashtra had a blast at the Sangli sanctuary. They experienced the Compassionate Citizen workshop at their school earlier this year, and this fun-filled day was all about compassion, too. They enjoyed a delicious vegan lunch and met the animals. Meanwhile, at the Ranapur and Gundlupet sanctuaries, Hollywood actress Alicia Silverstone donated vegan lunches to visiting students who enjoyed an exciting day of learning about how to be kind to animals.
