CPS-worker about her daily work and life in Kenya

Your work with AGIAMONDO and the Association Foi et Justice

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 Burundi, AGIAMONDO wants to contribute to the civil conflict resolution there and to the sustainable and just development of the country as well as the Great Lakes region through peacebuilding measures.


The Cameroon branch of the "Association Foi et Justice" is a network in Africa founded by religious congregations and aims to contribute to the resolution and transformation of conflicts exacerbated by migratory movements of internally displaced persons and to overcome the social consequences. General information on the Africa Europe Faith and Justice Network can be found here.

The position aims to ensure the sustainable establishment of the observation teams in different regions in order to obtain first-hand information on the situation of IDPs in Cameroon. The aim is to initiate a social change that will sustainably improve coexistence with the original population. In this context, the partner organization is the only organization in our program working on the thematic complex of climate and peace.
