Heidi Kühn, Founder/CEO, Roots of Peace- Building Peace “From the Ground Up” To Eradicate Landmines Around the World
Inspired by the humanitarian work of the late Princess Diana, in 1997 media executive Heidi Kühn established Roots of Peace, a not-profit organization dedicated to the eradication of landmines world-wide and the transformation of former minefields into thriving farmland. The organization has worked in mine-affected countries, including Afghanistan, Angola, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Cambodia, Iraq, Israel and Palestine, and Vietnam, restoring economic viability through its demine-replant-rebuild model.
The Roots of Peace Mines To Vines programs have been recognized by global leaders around the world, including UN Secretary-Generals Kofi Annan and BAN Ki-moon, Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel, and President Mahmoud Abbas of Palestine, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis, all of whom have applauded Heidi Kühn and her organization for its grounded mission to plant the roots of peace on earth.
Through Kühn’s leadership, Roots of Peace has forged innovative public/private partnerships with leaders of the Napa Valley, Silicon Valley, and the U.S. government, resulting in over one million dollars in matching funds to remove landmines in war-torn regions around the world. Today, as the U.S. and Allied troups draw down in Afghanistan, Roots of Peace is the largest NGO under contract, working in all 34 provinces, to provide a comprehensive approach to restoring rural agricultural lands and rebuilding livelihoods.
Heidi has been recognized internationally for her vision and work creating a humanitarian organization with a mission “to build peace from the ground up.” She is the recipient of many prestigious local and international awards including the Cal Berkeley Alumni Award for Excellence and Achievement, the SKOLL Award for Social Entrepreneurship, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis – National Jefferson Award for Public Service and most recently the San Francisco – Ho Chi Minh City Distinguished Humanitarian Award 2014. http://www.rootsofpeace.org https://twitter.com/RootsofPeace
