REJA Initiative Partners with Remedi

Restorative Justice for Africa (REJA) Initiative is delighted to have completed a special training course on Restorative Justice, Facilitation and Victims support provided by Remedi Restorative Service, a UK based non-profit Restorative Justice Organization.

It was indeed an intellectually tasking but mutually beneficial, and enjoyable journey for both sides. We appreciate the industry of our facilitator, Gavin Hudson, in taking pains to ensure that our team members understand the nitty gritty of the course which cost several days and long hours.

REJA is also happy about the great value derived from the training which better positions the organization and its personnel at the forefront of Restorative Justice advocacy in Nigeria plus the benefits that will inure to both organizations as a result of the new found collaboration and anticipated partnerships between them.

We therefore reassure our partners, donors, sponsors, volunteers, beneficiaries and the general populace of a safe, transparent and all inclusive restorative service delivery on all fronts. Thank you for your continued support.
