The Justice and Peace section that observes and promotes the human rights and the dignity of the human person. It is founded on the social teaching of the church that defends the poor and the vulnerable in defending their rights and privileges. As it is said elsewhere, were there is no justice, there is no peace and peace being the development of the peoples.
Through the justice and peace the church involves itself in societal issues of governance, rights and development of women and children. The church does also involve in the education of the society on many matters of justice and development.
