We work to empower people in prison to drive positive change.


We exist to transform imprisonment across Africa, modelling a human rights, rehabilitative approach — working from the inside out.


Our mission is outworked across four key areas...


Equipping senior leaders with formal education, legal training and exposure to global best practice to ensure that prisoners’ rights are upheld – and that everyone is entitled to a fair and speedy trial, with the facility to access bail and appeal against unjust circumstances.
