Roots of Peace works in war-torn countries around the world to remove the remnants of war and restore the land to rebuild peaceful communities for generations to come. The organization’s methodology is rooted in a philosophy of providing market-driven solutions tailored to rural communities in war-torn lands, serving as a catalyst for industry-wide development. This approach has impacted over one million farmers and families. With the help of Roots of Peace, farmers are addressing key challenges to increased income by applying modern technology and farming techniques that result in Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, Croatia and Vietnam. In Afghanistan, Roots of Peace has facilitated the export of $445 million in fresh and dried fruits, nuts, and spices to new and existing overseas markets, provided training for nearly 200,000 Afghan farmers in a wide variety of horticultural skills, provided more than $100 million in machinery grants and created 14,500 full-time jobs in all areas of farm production and export. Roots of Peace is currently implementing the USAID-funded Agriculture Marketing Program (AMP) and the INL-funded Community Based Agriculture and Rural Development (CBARD) in Afghanistan.
