A look at the Fambul Tok program in Sierra Leone where victims and perpetrators of the brutal civil war gather for tradition-based truth-telling and forgiveness ceremonies. Through reviving the ancient practice of fambul tok (family talk), Sierra Leoneans are building sustainable peace at the grass-roots level. Here, we observe a culture that believes forgiveness is the surest path to restoring dignity and building strong communities.
