Our Strategic Plan

Executive Summary

JDPC Onitsha is a registered non-governmental and faith-based organization that has the vision to see a society where justice, equity, development and peace reign with the disposition to promote the dignity of the vulnerable and marginalized. The task to realize its vision is challenged by lots of problems. Our environment is threatened by lots of degradations and pollutions that are tantamount to environmental injustices. The political and governance institutions of the state mostly exclude the marginalized groups.


Most orphans and vulnerable children have little or no access to dignified living. Justice for all and respect for human rights are impaired by abuses, intimidations and victimization by state actors and by some citizens against fellow citizens. Many in poor and rural communities lack adequate livelihood support for sustainable socioeconomic life. Lack of proactive disposition to prevent or tackle emergency situations creates humanitarian crisis. More so, the number of jobless youths is increasing on daily basis with its resultant increase in social ills and youth hopelessness to make meaningful existence.

Access to Justice of the poor and marginalized

Hence, the situations demand strategic initiatives as remedy in solving the problems. In doing this, JDPC proposes seven thematic units for intervention and programming to impact positive changes – Environmental Justice, Orphan and Vulnerable Children, Judiciary, Legal Aid and Prison Apostolate, Democracy and Good Governance, Economic and Social Justice, Humanitarian, Youth Education and Entrepreneurship.


The workability of the above strategies will depend on the achievement of the following set out objectives:

  • . Improved environmental hygiene for urban and rural poor
  • . Improved wellbeing of orphans and vulnerable children
  • . Increased access to Justice of the poor and marginalized
  • . Increased participation of women and other marginalized people in the democratic process
  • . Improved livelihood of the poor in rural and urban communities
  • . Increased resilience to man and natural made disasters
  • . Enhanced entrepreneurial skills of youths to become economically self-dependent


This strategy is based on the principles of the Catholic Social Teachings, which is a call for people to understand the day to day realities that poor and marginalized people experience throughout the world.  And most importantly, Catholic Social Teaching is a call to action – ‘calling us to look for creative solutions in the face of terrible oppression and despair, calling us not to lose sight of the world in which we want to live.


JDPC will put in place all necessary arsenals to see that the SP works. The following steps are also crucial: resourcing plan for fund and personnel, drawing succession plan, sustainability plan, communication plan, developing monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning tools, risk analysis and management tools will all be used for the overall implementation of the plan.


The implementation will be judiciously followed with designated budget, planned activities according to budget lines, allotment of the person’s responsible, timeframe and annual review of the plan.
