IFA Fringe events!

Art of Dynamic Presentation
Are you a voice for the voiceless? Do you speak a lot in public in order to get support or better conditions for animals or do you want to? Do you want your presentations to be more effective and pursuasive? Here is a chance to sharpen up your presentation skills so that every event that you conduct reaches even more hearts and minds and helps you make bigger strides for animals right after the India for Animals conference in Goa. This presentation skills course has been sponsored by SHARAN and Enlighten to make it affordable to animal advocates. Read more

Peas vs Pills
Perhaps you know that a plant based diet can help animals and the environment tremendously. But its hard to give up all the food that you are used. And if you do, how can you look after all those animals if you don't look after yourself first? Many animal advocates are falling sick and losing the time they could have spent to help animals in going to the doctor and staying in bed. You can change that by learning simple health rules so that you too can say that you never get sick. SHARAN has been conducting health seminars all over India to help people express their true compassion for animals and get healthy too. This one is especially priced for participants of India for Animals and will take place right after the main conference. Read more
