CFJ believes in a just society in which people are treated equally regardless of their color, ethnicity, gender or social standing. We are particularly committed to promoting and defending the rights of socially disadvantaged groups and persons. In the next four years, CFJ will focus on the following issues to promote social justice in Malawi:
Malawi’s food situation remains precarious due to a variety of factors including unreliable land tenure systems and the threat posed by the looming scramble for land by multinational corporations.
Malawi is a heavily patriarchal society where women have little to no say in family and public affairs. Women are underrepresented at all levels of society and often experience gender related exploitation and violence. CFJ will make sure that gender mainstreaming and women’s rights are incorporated into all its activities and advocacy campaigns.
Poor governance, inadequate/lack of implementation of legal frameworks, corporate greed and glaring income inequalities have rendered the poor in Malawi particularly vulnerable to abuses of various kinds. CFJ undertakes to represent vulnerable Malawians who are abused or aggrieved by corporations and those in authority/positions of power.
