Chiefdom Peace Mothers’ Platforms to be established

The role of Peace Mothers since its establishment fourteen years ago has been tremendous in Fambul Tok operational districts in the country. Peace Mothers group was initiated due to the fact that women ,especially those that faced difficulties during the war were posing questions to Fambul Tok as to what could be done to salvage their situation.

Fambul Tok was bold to tell them that it did not have money to give anyone but will work with women so that they would work together to achieve their goals.

After the launching of the group in 2010, over 200 peace mothers groups have been formed in various sections in the country. The women have been working together to develop their communities.

In 2021, even though peace mothers are working together, there is need to create another level to link with other structures in the chiefdoms.
