The CDJP (Commission Diocésaine Justice et Paix) Bujumbura is a structure of the Archdiocese of Bujumbura.
It aims to promote justice and peace within the framework of Christian social teaching and accompanies processes of non-violent conflict transformation and reconciliation within the archdiocese. In doing so, the CDJP, as part of the archdiocese, sets signs for the protection of peace in Burundi and thus has an impact beyond the diocesan borders. The CDJP's work focuses on supporting and strengthening the capacities of the Justitia et Pax structures in the parishes as well as through a network of committed volunteers. In doing so, the CDJP is committed to the areas of peace and reconciliation, as well as human rights and social justice. Through your support, you will help to strengthen and further develop the work of the CDJP for peace, conflict transformation and reconciliation. You will participate in CDJP's coordination role in justice and peace work within the Archdiocese of Bujumbura. They accompany the capacity building of women staff and can thus make an effective contribution in the peace and reconciliation work of the Archdiocese in the context of a past burdened by violence.
Bujumbura is the economic capital and the largest city in Burundi. As such, it offers a good supply and infrastructure as well as a society characterized by diversity. At the same time, it has the calm and relaxed atmosphere of a rather small city on Lake Tanganyika.
