Some 100 schools that have registered for the Trees for Peace Initiative will received the books. The Trees for Peace Initiative was launched on Peace Day, March 6. Schools across the island were encouraged to designate a space for a peace garden. The area is to be used for conflict resolution, as well as relaxation.
