As one of the recommendations of an annual evaluation of the Justice and Peace Commission which took place within the month of November 2014, conducted by an International Consultant, Chin Kongnyuy Geraldine, the Justice and Peace Commission organized a Four Day Workshop from the 26th - 28th November 2014 to elaborate its Strategic Plan.
Participants during this exercise were staff members of the Justice and Peace Commission, elected Justice and Peace Commission members at Deanery and Archdiocesan levels, the Archdiocesan Prison Chaplaincy Team, and some individuals interested in the work of the Commission.
This document gives the Service a better focus and an added-value to its work. It is centered on two (02) goals:
- Constructive conflict management at all levels in order to build cohesive and stable communities
- Poverty reduction and sustainable development by promoting democratic processes, respect for and compliance with human rights, and by efforts to eliminate corruption
It will go about this by implementing activities in four (04) Key Result Areas;
- Democratic Governance and Decision Making
- Access to Justice and Dispute Settlement
- Economic empowerment of women including vulnerable groups and victims of trafficking
- Organizational Development
In line with the Strategic Plan, the Justice and Peace Commission now has a new vision; it believes in a transformed society whose systems and structures as well as the attitudes and behaviours of the people are respecting and promoting human dignity, equality, sustainable peace and development.
