Kamleshwar Mahadev Temple

Shrivedant Foundation has built a temple for lord Shiva in July 2013 in the town of Kibigori near Kisumu in Kenya. The temple with modern amenities like a full fledged kitchen, hall etc serves as a centre for the food outreach program and medical camps that are conducted by the foundation.

There was an ancient temple on the site for more than hundred years which has been helping devotees with their wishes. It is a symbol of the beliefs people hold in the temple as despite being located in a remote area, it is much visited by many every week.

The temple regularly conducts various puja to Shiva to bring devotees together.

Founder Director

VAISHALI SHAH is the Founder Director of Shrivedant Foundation and has a keen desire to spread the eternal message of Indian Scriptures to every part of the world so that everyone is benefited and has been passionately trying to bring them all under one umbrella so that they are just a click away without seekers having to move out of their comfort zones. The non-profit Foundation is committed to sharing research through the development of educational tools and materials relating to Scriptures and also providing practical and rational content to the world.  Vaishali aspires to weave together members of the Hindu community and all those who subscribe to the Hindu way of living all around the sphere and also to create a legitimate pride in our heritage and religion especially among its younger members.

She has developed Courses on Hindu Culture and Lifestyle Studies for various age groups to spread the knowledge of Indian culture in more rational way. She has also authored‘The Veg Safari’, a book which explores the practical, ethical and ecological reasons for turning towards veganism or vegetarianism backed by case studies based on years of research and practical experience.

Vaishali believes that ancient Indian wisdom which is all inclusive should be shared with theurban elite, the younger generation and with professionals from the corporate world so that they can live an Indian lifestyle with utmost ease and conviction. An introvert who normally shuns publicity, she has chosen to step out into public glare with the sole aim of making available this ancient wisdom to the vast majority all over the world who are filled with many doubts and misgivings.

She has developed materials for seminars, journals, workshops and magazines to reach out to a larger audience worldwide face to face on a personal interactive basis. She also conducts private custom-made workshops on demand to small and medium size groups of people.



Shrivedant Foundation was founded by Vaishali Shah and family in Kenya. Looking around there is a lot of disharmony and chaos in the world today; this is because we have moved away from our real nature which is to be human and have become more materialistic and self-centred. In our quest for prosperity and in the name of advancement, we have disregarded rules of nature and have plundered our environment leading to many problems globally. We need to fill our hearts with love and compassion and be empathetic towards nature and other beings. With this in focus, Shrivedant Foundation undertakes activities like bringing the real knowledge of Indian scriptures, developing various spiritually motivational material in practical and rational way to suit today’s generation, feeding the less privileged, taking care of the environment by undertaking tree planting on a large scale throughout the country, encouraging people to move to a vegetarian diet, support farmers to grow more vegetables for human consumption, working with local women and self help groups to make them economically independent and acquaint the world on the glory of Indian culture.
