Your work with AGIAMONDO and CODAS – CDJP

Responsible and Challenging

AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of German Catholics for development cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS), we offer development workers a meaningful role working with local development agents. The CPS is a personnel programme for peace-building and the prevention of violence in crisis and conflict regions. It sets out to promote a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. Working with church-related and civil-social partner organisations in Cameroon, AGIAMONDO aims to make a contribution towards civil conflict management and the sustainable and equitable development of the country through peace-building measures.

CDJP, CODAS Ngaoundéré leads the socio-pastoral work in the diocese of Ngaoundéré, which covers the province of Adamaoua. Through five departments, the organization promotes the population's access to education, health, justice and decent living conditions. The region is diverse in terms of religion and ethnicity, leading to ongoing conflicts. CODAS/Caritas' CDJP is committed to the integration of displaced people and equitable access to local resources in the Adamaoua region. The Ngaoundéré site offers recreational opportunities and basic health care and is easily accessible by road, rail, and air.
