AGIAMONDO Co-worker about their daily work and life in Liberia

Shaping change as a CPS worker

Responsible and challenging

AGIAMONDO is the personnel service of German Catholics for development cooperation. In the Civil Peace Service (CPS), we offer professionals the opportunity for meaningful service in cooperation with local development actors. The CPS is a personnel program for violence prevention and peacebuilding in crisis and conflict regions. It works for a world in which conflicts are settled without violence. Together with church and civil society partner organizations in Liberia, AGIAMONDO wants to contribute to the civil conflict resolution there and to the sustainable and just development of the country through peacebuilding measures.


The Catholic Education Secretariat (CES) is responsible for the administration of 27 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Monrovia. This includes approximately 800 teachers and 14,000 students. The vision of the Catholic Education Secretariat is to fully educate the intellectual, physical, emotional, moral and spiritual dimensions of human growth across religious boundaries with quality and at an affordable cost. The CES seeks to contribute to a peaceful Liberia where the psychosocial needs of students in the Catholic Church school systems are treated with love, care and understanding not only by their parents, guardians and teachers, but by the entire society.
