Established in 2014, the Pademba Prison Project has been a beacon of hope for inmates within the Sierra Leone Correctional Service, having worked with over 1400 beneficiaries. Our comprehensive approach focuses on providing psychosocial support, feeding, education, and legal assistance, with a special emphasis on the most vulnerable inmates.
The project’s core objectives center around granting a decent life, empowerment, skills training, and successful reintegration into society for the beneficiaries. Legal support, including bail and fines, is extended to those in need. Workshops covering literacy, alphabetization, and computer classes empower inmates for life after prison.
Essential provisions such as food, water, hygiene materials, medical care, and psychological support are key elements of our assistance. Family tracing and mediation precede the reunification of beneficiaries with their families. Notably, as of 2023, 142 inmates have been successfully reunited with their families through this initiative.
Beyond incarceration, the post-prison project extends its reach by providing education, skills training, and housing support to beneficiaries who have been reintegrated into society. This holistic approach aims not only to address immediate needs within the prison but also to create a sustainable impact on the lives of those transitioning back into their communities.
We invite you to join us in making a lasting difference. Your support can contribute to the transformation of lives, offering second chances and opportunities for a brighter future.
