  1. ZANZIBAR CITY OF PEACE
    LET US UNITE FOR ZANZIBAR CITY OF PEACE & (ZANZIBAR OF PEACE CLUBS TO CHANGE ZANZIBAR COMMUNITY/ AND THE WORLD)
    Dear all Friends in Peace
    We greet you all in True Peace & Solidarity. My name is Ali Mussa Mwadini and I am the Founder of our Organization, and currently voluntarily working as Executive Secretary & Peace Activist and Founder of Zanzibar City of Peace Clubs Project. Our Organization Zanzibar Peace, Truth & Transparency Association (ZPTTA NGO), is committed to the promotion of peace & peace related issues, via increased negotiation, reconciliation and dialogue. We promote forgiveness and advocate for Human Rights, Gender Equality, Good governance and the Rule of law. Our Organization ZPTTA NGO, is a non-profit, non Political, non Military and non Religious, registered in Zanzibar, Tanzania
    Zanzibar Peace, Truth & Transparency Association is a Non government, non- profit, non political welfare and non- Military, registered in Zanzibar with its headquarters in Zanzibar Town. ZPTTA NGO is working to respond to the NEEDS of people living in the rural communities and in Town, in Peace & Peace Related issues, Human Rights, Gender Issues and Non violence way of life in Zanzibar Community. Our Organization (ZPTTA NGO) is struggling against the calamities such as Disputes, Violence, Conflicts, Terrorism and Genocide.
    Our Organization is working in Unguja & Pemba Islands. This organization is an initiative of the two years Project Promoting a True Culture of Peace in Zanzibar Community. The organization is currently working in North District Unguja implementing the first Phase of our Project Promoting a True Culture of Peace in Zanzibar Community.
    To build and recover the traditional culture of Peace in Zanzibar community.
    The Organization will focus and make sure that the community and society in general will recover their traditional culture, and remove the concepts of destroying the culture toward the political system. The Community in Zanzibar lost their curriculum and involved in modern socialization leads to the destroying of their True culture Peace.
    The recent history of Zanzibar has been marred by political division and related violent episodes. Since the early 1990’s there have emerged two dominant parties but repeated clashes between them has led to the loss of innocent lives and the degradation of national unity and peace throughout the archipelago. Peace accords between the contending parties have not been effective and therefore a concerted campaign for political and social tolerance is being pursued to re-establish a culture of harmony and peace in Zanzibar
    Right now, our Organization Zanzibar Peace, Truth & Transparency association (ZPTTA NGO), more than ever, need very support to Promote, Sustain & Implement a True Culture of Peace in Zanzibar Community, which is no longer exists. Zanzibar Community has lost its Traditional true Couture of Peace, due to the Local Politics. As an Example this time we have two Elections. We had Tanzania General Election in October 2015, which did Zanzibar Government did not accept the Result. We had another Election on March 2016.
    We need each other to heal, and we need each other to learn from our long term experience in unnecessary Conflicts among the Community. We are, by all means working very hard from the grass root, trying to put together all Zanzibar People through our life long Project (Zanzibar City of Peace clubs). We know it is not easy, but from your willingness to help our Community from the (Blood shade) our Organization and all its Members stand farm, hopping Zanzibar Community we will turn round and accept the Peace Clubs as a source and means of reaching their goal ( true Culture of Peace)and way forward to live together in Peace and Harmony.
    As our Organization contemplated our work as an educator of True Culture of Peace, Conflict resolution on the Peaceful means Democracy, Interfaith & Gender equality. We are quite aware How do we do this? How do we go beyond trying to just change people’s minds, to reaching people’s hearts? I have a sense that it lies in personal relationships, reaching across divides, in true dialogue for understanding—often starting with our own families and our neighbors.
    The answer is our strong Commitments to Zanzibar City of Peace Clubs, your collaboration and your physical Support will make this Dream Reality
    We believe that only through joint action can we break the cycle of violence
    Our direction is that of nonviolent struggle and we call on both nations to join us to achieve peace and reconciliation in Zanzibar Community
    Peace does not happen by itself; it requires commitment, perseverance and continuing efforts.
