Formation of the Laity and Catholic Professionals on the Social Teaching of the Church

When the program kicked off in 2017, training was run for members of Caritas Rwanda and the Peace and Justice Commission from the Archdiocese of Kigali. The year 2020 will have JUC run formations for university students in 6 campuses across the country as well as for members of Caritas, and the Justice and Peace Commission in 8 Dioceses of Rwanda.

Research, Advocacy and Publication

Since 2018, JUC in collaboration with Nyina W’umuntu Organization has been conducting a countrywide research on the root causes of Domestic Violence in Rwanda, which will see its completion and presentation in the year 2020. Data collection preparation was done from November 2018 to March 2019, followed by data collection and analysis on both qualitative and quantitative data; this is still ongoing. The next step is the presentation of data at a regional conference to be held in May 2020, in Kigali, which shall be followed by publication of said presentation in Local, regional and international media.

Social Justice Calendars

The Social Justice Calendar has been an effort by the Jesuit Urumuri Centre that is meant to educate and guide people on Catholic social teaching. This in turn helps them with the concept of faith which is a necessity in terms of the universal promotion of justice for all. The centre has been designing and printing these since 2017, which makes this year’s (2020), the fourth edition.
