Vivianne is a passionate advocate for animal welfare and humanitarian initiatives.


She has co-created several animal welfare projects abroad, including: The ABC clinic for stray and feral cats and dogs at the Art of Living Yoga International Center, TNR (Trap Neuter Release) feral cat projects in California, and helped with the original plan of the World Compassion Day (WCD) event in Mumbai, with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This event was sponsored and organized by the National Media Foundation, a division of Pritish Nandy Communications, Ltd. which collaborated with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) & Humane Society International (HSI), and the Foundation for Non-Violent Alternatives (FNVA), an institute for developing peace studies.

Genuine kindness is as mesmerizing as the petals of a blossoming cherry tree swirling in the springtime breeze.

Humility is bowing in reverence to all living beings while realizing there is One great supreme intelligence behind it all.
