Somali Peace Line was founded in 1995, following the second International Congress of Somali Studies in Paris, France that looked at the “Culture of Peace in Somalia”. SPL fulfills a distinct mandate and is guided by the principles of Political and Social Non-partisanship, Transparency & Accountability, Best Interests of the Child, belief in the capacity of Somalis to solve their own problems, Gender equity and reduction and/or elimination of poverty and illiteracy as a means to sustainable peace.

SPL is a key member organization of the Somali civil society organizations and is continually acknowledged and appreciated by its partners for its tireless commitment and collaboration in the cause of social change.
Somali Peace Line in partnership with the Life & Peace Institute (LPI) is implementing a project that addresses some of the obstacles that curtail the participation of women and youth from decision-making in Somalia. Through a combination of methodologies, the action intends to transform inter-personal/intergroup relationships among youth and women, provide space for collaboration, enhance self-efficacy, address the economic needs of young people and ensure their engagement with local decision-makers while also lifting their contributions to national policies. The overall objective of the action is to contribute to women and youth empowerment and inclusion as agents of peace in Somalia as a building-block for a more stable, resilient and accountable society.


Somali Peace Line wishes to contract qualified motivational speaker for the Participatory Peace building & Development project in Baidoa and Jowhar. The speaker will travel to these two towns monthly to impart knowledge, counsel and experience, and above all, inspire. She/he is expected to create visionary and self-confident youth that have not only the skills but also the determination needed to succeed in a volatile environment like Somalia.
This activity which is intended to help women and female and male youth have synchronously increased self-confidence and efficacy at the personal level, is planned to be implemented monthly in Jowhar and Baidoa. The speaker will make presentations to 240 participants/moderators in each town at the end of every month in a period of 6 months. The participants may ask questions about the topic. The topics should reach out to the self-actualization or ‘minds and souls’ of female and male youth by supporting motivational speeches that can inspire hope and help build their self-esteem, which will further strengthen their resilience. Inspirational figures will mobilise their social, religious or individual roles and achievements to strengthen the confidence and sense of self-efficacy of the targeted youth.
