We work with people in prison putting the power of the law in the hands of the poor.

By providing high-quality legal advice, training, and education to those living and working in prison, we empower those most in need of justice to access it for themselves.


We are committed to pursuing access to justice for those who need it most, across Africa and beyond. Through prisoners and prison staff, we seek to place the power of the law into the hands of the poor, enabling them to make, shape and implement the law.


Our mission is outworked across THREE key areas...

Through our Justice Changemaker Programme, we are working in prisons across Kenya and Uganda, demonstrating an effective model of rehabilitation that is transforming lives.
