Creators of Peace

Creators of Peace transforms, empowers and engages women in peace creation.

The Peace Circle has helped me realise that rather than my life reacting to events and people, I can take responsibility for the direction it is meant to take. In that process I can also include others who want to make a difference, but who doubt their own ability.” Peace Circle participant, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Creators of Peace is a global women’s peace initiative that was launched in 1991 at the Initiatives of Change conference centre in Caux, Switzerland, by Anna Abdallah Msekwa, a respected politician and trailblazer of women-led organisations in Tanzania. In her inaugural speech she made a call to action to “create peace wherever we are, in our hearts, our homes, our workplace and our community. We all pretend that someone else is the stumbling block … could that someone be myself?”
