Maputo, 13 December, 2020 / 12:03 pm (ACI Africa).
The training aimed at creating awareness about human rights violation in Mozambique that took place earlier this week has been lauded as beneficial to community members at the grassroots.
Organized by the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace (CJPC) of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Mozambique (CEM), the two-day training that concluded Tuesday, December 8 aimed to address matters of justice and peace in the Southern African country.
“Our goal is to create awareness among the people in communities to be able to know when they are being wronged. We hope they will be fully aware of the value of life and of their personal identity,” Sr. Pillar Puerta de la Rueda, one of two facilitators of the training said.
Making reference to Mozambicans in general, Sr. Pillar, a Spanish-native who has been in Mozambique for the last 13 years said, “The big problem is that people don’t know that their fundamental rights are being violated and that they are being wronged.”
