This video shows the work of the women of the Bari region of Puntand in their pursuit of peace. They brought their creativity into play to convey messages of peace among two separate communities and helped to bring warring clans back to the negotiation table. The women wrote and performed their calls for peace in the form of poetry and song, which was captured on film and compiled into short video clips by the Puntland Development Research Center and then shared with both communities.
