Peace and Social Justice
Importance of Peace and Social Justice
Social justice promotes fairness and equity across many aspects of society. It acts as the invisible force that makes it possible for all of the themes within the Voluntary Service Framework to be realised.
It ensures that equal human rights; fairness, equal treatment, and equal opportunities to obtain jobs, healthcare remain a core value to be fought for and preserved.
It creates the environment that promotes equal economic, educational and workplace opportunities that helps guarantee the safety and security of individuals and communities.
A place for advocacy
Advocacy will be the central tenets of this theme. We will aim to promote opportunities to ensure that people’s voices are heard on issues that are important to them. We seek to promote dialogue that would protect and promote basic human rights.
Advocacy is about creating awareness of various issues that aims to influence political, economic, social and institutional decisions. We believe that in our current highly interconnected and politicised world, advocacy can be an important tool in highlighting issues that we champion.
As many people do not have access to and understand most issues that affect their daily lives. Therefore, having a group of dedicated advocates who take the time to fully understand the issues, they are able to then inform the public through media channels.
Our Strategic Plan
We plan to recruit friend volunteers who are willing to work with on advocating for the various causes that we support, circulating their findings through appropriate media channels.
