The Catholic Agency for Justice, Peace and Development
Where we work
We are working with vulnerable communities in Bamiyan Province to improve food security through farming and nutrition education. The project focuses on fostering sustainable behaviour to address issues of food security.
We support partners to educate communities about the negative impacts of mining and help them negotiate with mining companies. Caritas is also helping the Commission for Justice and Development (CJD) in Fiji with their long-term goal of creating a Caritas Fiji.
Caritas partners with the Diocese of Tarawa and Nauru through several small Catholic groups to deliver programmes focused on climate awareness and youth leadership, training for women, developing sustainable livelihoods and agricultural training for youth.
The Philippines are particularly vulnerable to typhoons and Caritas provides emergency relief when they hit. We also work with rural communities to develop sustainable and climate-resilient livelihoods.
