African Prisons Project

In Kenya and Uganda 90% of the prison population cannot afford a lawyer, 60% are on remand, and it is not uncommon for a decade to pass without a trial. The African Prisons Project works to reverse these trends by training prisoners in common and criminal law. Some are learning to write their own appeals while others are even representing themselves in court. One graduate of the program stated ‘the way we came in is not how we are now’. With pride in his eyes the graduate says ‘behind prison walls, there are brains, brains that can move mountains.’
