QPI was born in September 2014 out of a national network of Quakers working for peace under the auspices of Change Agent Peace Program (CAPP; a long-held peace caravan that was driven by Quakers and Quaker-led organizations around the country that has roots dating back to the year 2003 when the movement was established) but was registered in January 2016, receiving its certification on the 27th of May 2016 as a Non- Governmental Organization (NGO)out of a burning desire by local Quakers involved in peacebuilding in the Quaker fraternity in Kenya who unarguably believe in the Quaker Peace Testimony as edified through the various functions and structures within the Quakers worldwide and the representation of Quakers through the United Nations Office both in Geneva and New York.
