Meatless Monday GhanaGhana has officially joined the Meatless Monday movement!
On September 25th, 2015, the campaign launched during the 10th Annual Vegetarian Festival (Vegfest) at Efua Sutherland Children’s Park in Accra.

The program in Ghana plans to organize lectures, a monthly healthy lifestyle variety show, cooking demonstrations, and public education events about how to prepare tasty meatless meals on Mondays.

According to Meatless Monday Ghana Campaign Manager Ady Namaran Clottey, adhering to a vegan diet once a week is a gift we give to ourselves as when we eat less meat, “we feel better and the quality of our life improves.” Mrs. Clottey went on to explain that Meatless Monday has many benefits, including better personal health and nutrition, protecting the environment, reducing animal suffering, and working to end world hunger.
