What we do

Climate Change

Climate change is threatening to undermine churches� efforts to achieve human and social development in Nigeria.

Erratic rainfall and extreme weather associated with climate change are jeopardizing agriculture in many places in Nigeria and West and Central African States.

The heaviest burden associated with�climate change today is being borne by� the poorest of the poor in many countries in West Africa.

The organisation is developing a strategy to mitigate the effects of drastic climate change.

Food Security

We campaign for adequate access to food as a basic human right.

To protect small-scale farmers and poor consumers - we promote fair-trade and just food policies.

We are looking for new and adaptable technologies for farmers to improve their farming practices. We are campaigning for:�"Eat what you Grow � Grow what you Eat" to protect local markets from being flooded with foreign goods and to strengthen local products and farmers to ensure food security.

We promote relief systems for low income people who are suffering from hunger as a result of injustice, natural catastrophes, or conflicts.�

Combating corruption

Corruption hurts everyone and undermines democracy. Corruption violates political and civil rights by rendering political institutions and processes ineffective.

Corruption weakens the judiciary and law enforcement agencies. Corruption infringes on economic and social rights by denying equitable access to public services such as health and education and creates obstacles to earning a livelihood.

Therefore we campaign for 'Zero Tolerance on Corruption'.�

Human rights

We campaign for human rights, justice, peace and equality before the law in Nigeria and the world.�

Good governance

We work to promote and strengthen civil societies in West Africa the level of accountability, democratic values and security.

We work together with decision-makers to improve the lives of people in West Africa. PJEM will monitor elections in the region to ensure that they are free, fair and transparent.�

Capacity building

We build leadership capacity through capacity-building workshops on:

  • Lobby and advocacy
  • Female and youth empowerment
  • Human rights and the rule of law
  • Peace building and peace making
  • Trauma healing and reconciliation.
  • Group training on financial management and church administration.

Citizen Right

A livelihood

We campaign for food security and better protection of natural resources. �

Education and health

Being well-educated and healthy is the way out of poverty. PJEM works together with decision-makers to change policies in order to pave the way for affordable and accessible health care and education for all.�

Being heard

Citizens living in poverty often have little influence on decisions that affect their lives. We cooperate with civil society organisations to help to give a voice to the voiceless.

Being treated equally

Marginalized groups, such as women, youth and the physically challenged, are more likely to be poor. We therefore work towards changing policy to ensure that all people have equal access to employment, basic social services and influence in their communities.
