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.
In Cambodia we have a five-year programme which supports indigenous people to improve their farming techniques, adapt their crops to a changing climate, and protect their forests against illegal logging.
Caritas supports non-formal education of farmers and helps remote communities resist the negative impacts of mining in their area. 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.
We work with rural communities to develop sustainable and climate-resilient livelihoods in the Philippines. This country is particularly vulnerable to typhoons and Caritas provides emergency relief when they hit.
We have been working with our partners in South Sudan to provide emergency supplies and improve food security and access to fresh water for the thousands of people who have been displaced by civil conflict. In recent months famine has been announced in some areas of South Sudan making the situation even more difficult.
