Creators of Peace International is a global network working to build resilient and hospitable communities one person at a time.
Meaningful peace is inclusive, and inclusion means giving equal voice to women—this is why we have been a women-led initiative since 1991.
When you support Creators of Peace, you support a new culture of peace and help us accelerate our impact locally, nationally and globally. When we expand our reach, we weave a strong network of empowered peace creators worldwide.
Njeri Ndiangui, a Kikuyu based in Subukia village, Kenya, joined a Peace Circle. There, she confronted her hatred of the Kalenjin community—deep bitterness and resentments that she’d always held. At this point she had a change of heart and assessed her own role in perpetuating the conflict between the communities.
Njeri began to reach out to the Kalenjin people, make friends with them, visited and stayed with a Kalenjin family and eventually invited them into her home. This inspired her to lead her local Creators of Peace team to Baringo County, a troubled area where three ethnic communities, the Pokots, the Tugens and the Illchamus, were in a long-standing conflict with one another.
Njeri and her team ran Peace Circles for women from each ethnic group. Eventually, there was a joint gathering. Apologies and forgiveness were given and received. After decades of hurt, hatred, resentments and blame, a journey of healing began.
