Chiradzulu, April, 21, 2017: Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP) has donated 80 bicycles worthy K12 million to Community Based Educators (CBEs) in Chiradzulu to easy mobility when implementing Violence against women and girls project.

Presenting the bicycles Thursday at the Boma, CCJP District Coordinator for Chiradzulu Patrick Robert said the bicycles were procured following the request from CBEs to have reliable transport to enable them move from one point to another with much ease.

“CBEs play a vital role in sensitizing communities on the need to promote primary justice by ensuring that women and girls are not abused. As such it is imperative for that to have reliable transport,” said Robert.

The coordinator therefore urged the beneficiaries to use the bicycles for the intended purpose for the project to bear desired fruits.

In her remarks, one of the beneficiaries Caroline Ndovie from Group village head Poya in Traditional Authority (TA) Mpama, lauded CCJP for the donation saying it would give them impetus to work hard.

“We will put more efforts to ensure that women and girls access primary justice because we can cover a wide area. This is really a good motivation,” said Ndovie.

CCJP is working in four TAs of  Mpama, Chitera, Kadewere and Ntchema with support from DFID through CCJP.
