Peace Tree Network (PTN) was established in the year 2000 with the mandate of fostering solidarity in the promotion of peace in the region. It came about as the result of continued consultations amongst peace actors in the region in conjunction with CIDSE-SAPNA. The consultations culminated in a workshop held in Nairobi, in 2000, on “The Challenges of Partnership Toward an Alliance for Peace building”. The workshop led to the creation of Peace Gate which has been renamed Peace Tree Network.
Important meetings and prayers were held under designated sacred trees in traditional African societies. The tree in our logo represents that sacred tree which is Peace Tree Network. Like a tree whose roots, stems, branches and leaves have each got a function for its lymph circulating by networking, members of PTN come together under one umbrella for a collaborative effort in view of a more peaceful society.
PTN envisions a peaceful co-existence amongst people and states of the region.
