Roots of Peace is a peace-building nonprofit: working all over the world to de-mine war & conflict-ravaged lands; striving to assist farmers and others to reclaim and rejuvenate the land. The agricultural focus means that RoP doesn't just go in and take out landmines, but actually helps people be able to say, proudly and safely, this land is mine and my family and I will thrive upon it. DeMine, RePlant, ReBuild... a worthy and lifesaving effort touching people in Angola, Croatia, Afghanistan, Viet Nam, Israel/Palestine, Kyrgyz Republic, Cambodia, and Iraq.
I became aware of roots of peace through a friend. I greatly admire their successful efforts of removing land mines and aiding farmers to regain these fields for sustainable and profitable agriculture. Its exciting that both the envirement and empovorished communities benefit from the outreach.
I am very impressed with this fine organization. Not only is the cause fundamentally important, the management staff is unusually capable and dedicated. I think Roots of Peace should be on everyone's list of priority non-profits to support.
As a person investing in and developing green alternatives, I am eager to support organizations that are not only aiding our world environment ecologically, but socially and humanely. Roots of Peace removes land mines, and aids farmers to grow sustainable profitable crops. The organization also builds schools and soccer fields for the children in these war torn countries.
I learned of this organization last year and was very touched by its story. The bravery, generosity, and passion serve as the foundation to advance the world in a better direction. I have had the honor of speaking with passionate members of this organization and deeply believe in their cause to spread equality of humanity to every corner where breaths do not carry the same life that we as Americans are blessed with.
This is an excellent organization that has been doing important work for many years. They are devoted and work diligently to further the ends of their project.
great organization and worthy cause helping remove land mines and planting vineyards. They are doing so much for the countries they work with.
The great work done by this organization can only result in a greener, more peaceful world. I highly recommend that if you are going to donate to a great cause, you donate to this organization, and contribute to the cause of planting trees and orchards, and the removal of landmines.
This is a internationally significant organization. RoP addresses a very sensitive subject that effects the economies of where it participates in the world in a very personal way. The removal of land mines and replacing them with profitable crops has 2 profound effects: 1) it clarifies the commitment we offer to a safe and valued country and people 2) RoP goes a step further and transforms that land in to something profitable and renewable. RoP is a great step towards diplomacy in Afganistan.
Roots of Peace (RoP) began in 1997 to remove landmines from war-torn countries, and help farmers plant sustainable, profitable crops. Since then, nearly 1,000,000 trees and grape vines have been planted.
I am a proud donor to Roots of Peace whose mission is to remove deadly landmines and return the land to productive use. From saving lives to returning farmers to their homes and farms, Roots of Peace has restored the dignity and income to thousands of people who've been horribly impacted by war and conflict. Their approach is to assist farmers to plant high-value crops on de-mined land while developing the farmer-to-market chain to create new markets for these crops. Over 700,000 fruit and nut trees have been planted in Afghanistan alone, providing an alternative to poppies, lifting farmers out of poverty, and reducing carbon emissions on our planet.
I too have contributed my time and efforts on behalf of Roots of Peace. I have composed a song for them and written extensively about their good works Of all the direct action organizations which have an immediate life saving impact Roots of Peace is paramount. Removing land mines to plant crops and build schools harvests both sustenance and peace.
