Executive Summary

All across Sierra Leone, women are leading their communities to peace. These 'Peace Mothers' are rising from unspeakable challenges to heal the wounds of their decade-long civil war and to generate new growth and development - person by person, village by village. Let yourself be inspired by their example in this new short film by Catalyst for Peace.
