During the past months I have been cooking a project in my mind: an organization on the lines of VIVA but directed toward audiences in the middle-east. This is desperately needed here, as there are tens of thousands of obstacles standing in the way of the vegetarian / vegan message, beginning with the religious and ending with the political.
The purpose of this organization is to promote the cruelty-free lifestyle in words that people in this part of the world would understand. I have spoken with a few local agencies who have expressed their willingness to support me, but a project like this will never work without international pressure from strong institutions.
Does anyone have any insight which agencies are best to contact?
