The Vegetarian Society of Tanzania was formed in January 2019 by a small group of academics, mainly from the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM), and activists, with a shared concern for the well-being of animals and the health and environmental impact of animal agriculture. It is the first and remains the only organization in Tanzania dedicated to promoting a vegetarian lifestyle, and continues to grow, with dozens of members across the country.

We focus on online awareness, public outreach, distribution of resources, and providing support for those who choose the vegetarian lifestyle.
