THE STORY:

Roots of Peace is dedicated to the eradication of landmines worldwide by turning Mines To Vines. Our mission is to turn minefields into prosperous farmland. By restoring the land's economic viability, we strengthen community values and restore a sense of peace. We restore dignity to mine victims by supporting their employment in the age-old cycle of planting, cultivating, and harvesting crops.

15 million tons of bombs were dropped in Vietnam during the war - more than all bombs dropped throughout Europe in WWII. Today, over 80% of the land in Quang Tri Province is still riddled with landmines and UXOs, rendering the land unusable for farmers. Donate today. Turn Mines to Vines by replacing minefields with thriving pepper vines. 

Our Impact:

We have worked with over 1,600 farmers in Vietnam who have seen an average increase in their income of 300%. With more money, farmers have provided more educational opportunities for their children, visited doctors fewer times, and saved money to renivest back into their farms.

We Need Your Help:

$10 donated today will pay for 2 black pepper vines

$20 donated today will pay for 1 farming tool

$50 donated today will pay for 1 bag of fertilizer

$100 donated today will pay for 1 training session for 30 farmers

$250 donated today will back for 1 subsidy package to support a farmer for an entire year

Our work in Vietnam has been recognized U.S. Department of State and is the recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Humanitarian Award from the Ho Chi Minh City San Francisco Sister City Committee.
