Within the cooperation that exists between the Justice and Peace Service (JPS) of the Archdiocese of Bamenda and the Association for Development Cooperation (AGEH) under the Civil Peace Service, the JPS received a support staff from AGEH in the person of Frauke DiβelkÖtter who will join the JPS team as Peace and Development Officer (PDO) for a period of three years (2016-2019).

In a welcome dinner that took place on the 11th of March 2016 at Superclass Restaurant, Finance Junction - Bamenda, all the staff of the Service welcomed the PDO in particular, and her family to the JPS. They took turns to express how happy they are to have Frauke join the team. She was equally encouraged to feel at home and not to hesitate to express any of her needs, be it work-related or not.

The Coordinator of the Service on her part used this opportunity to throw more light on the work of the Service, and how it has been in dare need of a PDO, a position that has temporally been held by volunteers, under the CPS programme. She hoped that this opportunity greatly boasts the work of the Service, particularly in the area of Peacebuilding.

Frauke thanked the entire JPS team for the warm reception she had when she arrived Bamenda, and more especially for the welcome dinner. She equally promised putting in her very best to foster the work of the Service.

Rehabilitating Women victims of trafficking in the archdiocese of Bamenda

This project was an upshot of previous projects to end child trafficking where women were identified who were trafficked as children and who by no choice of theirs had ended up working on the street as a means of livelihood. In collaboration with the Catholic Women’s Association, CWA, 32 women were identified and 20 and rehabilitated. They formed a support group “Nazareth Sisters”. They then became leaders and are now major actors in the struggle against modern day slavery.

STATUS (Completed) A 12 months project with sponsorship from CMC-Netherlands 2008-2009
