Jashu Shah Memorial Fund
more about Jashubai

Jashu Shah was from India and his first involvement with IVU was way back in 1957. Over the following years he held many important offices and organised major events for IVU, and in 1999 he founded and became the first President of the Asian Vegetarian Union. Sadly Jashu passed away in 2008. The 4th Asian Veg Congress, Batam, Indonesia, 2009, decided to honour him by creating this fund in his name.

Please donate what you can to help in this important work.

You can use this page to make a donation to IVU specifically to be added to the Jashu Shah Memorial Fund.

All funds in that account will be used to promote vegetarianism in India in remembrance of Jashu's role as IVU Regional Secretary then Regional Coordinator, for 20 years, 1986-2006. His untimely death in 2008 was a great loss to the movement.
