Justice & Peace

It began in 1980s as a commission in the diocese with the aim of contributing to the eradication of all forms of injustices wherever they existed within the diocese as it was already pointed out by Pope Leo XIII in his Encyclical (RERUM NOVARIUM 1891). The commission became active in 1998 when it started involving herself in various activities aiming at delivering people from dehumanizing conditions. It was in 2007 when the justice commission was transformed into Justice and Peace Department due to the expansion of her operations and the needs that emerged by then. Its activities are implemented under the following clusters such as Peace building, Legal Services and Good Governance; Environment and socio-economic services; Human Rights, Social welfare; Finance and Logistical Support services.
