Seeds of peace

Wangari Maathai, environmentalist and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, started the Green Belt Movement in Kenya. Women in this movement have planted more than 50 million trees.

“People are fighting over water, over food,” Wangari Maathai once said. “We plant the seeds of peace.”

I found this quote in Jeanette Winter’s book Wangari’s Trees of Peace.
