Who We Are

We are committed to restoring peace and justice, by strengthening communities through Restorative Justice Practices in Nigeria and across Africa.

Restorative Justice for Africa (REJA) was first conceived as an initiative in November 2017. However, we commenced operations fully in 2019. We are a social profit organization that is promoting access to justice and equally providing an approach that puts energy into the future, not the past. Centainly, an approach that begins with who has been hurt and what their needs may be, hence, giving wrongdoers a way back instead of guaranteeing them a lifetime of hardship…
