Fambul Tok International (FTI)
Portland, USA

Fambul Tok International (FTI) was established in 2009 and aims to advance peace by mobilizing ordinary people in the work of reconciliation. Fambul Tok (Krio for “Family Talk”) emerged in Sierra Leone as a face-to-face community-owned program bringing together perpetrators and victims of the violence in Sierra Leone’s eleven-year civil war through ceremonies rooted in the local traditions of war-torn villages. It provides Sierra Leonean citizens with an opportunity to come to terms with what happened during the war, to talk, to heal, and to chart a new path forward, together.
