Download a free PDF of the Fambul Tok Educational Guide


The Fambul Tok Educational Guide was developed for teachers to help integrate the film’s lessons of forgiveness, reconciliation and community into their curricula and classrooms. This workbook includes background material introducing students to Sierra Leonean history and culture, as well as lesson plans and worksheets to be used for classroom activities. The guide is designed to be used in conjunction with the 52-minute educational version of the Fambul Tok film, available through Documentary Educational Resources.

We have created both educator/facilitator and student workbooks, including a version adapted for specific use in Sierra Leone.

Watch the youth of Fambul Tok

Youth in Sierra Leone and the United State are exploring what peace means in their own communities. When children in the United States learned the story of Fambul Tok, they reached out to the youth of Sierra Leone with messages of hope and support. Watch to see how the children of Sierra Leone shared their story with their U.S. peers.
