Gentle World is a non-profit organization and intentional community, providing vegan education and inspiration since 1979. With visitor centers in Hawaii and New Zealand, we offer a unique educational experience which inspires people from all over the world to transition toward vegan living.
Gentle World is staffed exclusively by volunteers, and we always welcome assistance from individuals who are enthusiastic to contribute to our mission. If you are interested in volunteering your time to help support our educational program, please contact us.
Thank you to all our supporters!
We have been touched and humbled by the generosity of our supporters in helping us raise money to restore conditions after the flood that hit Shangri-La. It helps tremendously to know we will be able to replace what we lost and hopefully make things even better than they were before.
We are still receiving visitor requests for April, the last month of our NZ season, so we have already taken steps toward replacing the caravans that were lost, as well as making significant improvements to our water system.
Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to all who have contributed, as well as to those who have sent thoughtful messages of comfort and solidarity.
