The Vegan Muslim Initiative was founded by two vegan Muslims; Sammer Hakim and Elysia Ward out of Australia and Canada respectively.

After crossing paths in late 2015 via our first Facebook group and sharing a passion for health and the environment, we determined that if Muslims are going to be relevant and positive contributors to our planet’s future, then there must be a major paradigm shift in how we view and approach food.

We can no longer do what we inherited and expect good things to happen.

So we seek to educate our fellow men and women alike and encourage them to take the compassionate road; towards a better future for all.
