ABOUT US

Through our work, Christopher who would have been given the death penalty for a crime he did not commit after awaiting trial for 6 years is a free man today. Today, Christopher volunteers with our organisation and has been working as a maintenance engineer in a company since 2019. We have helped several others like him and we would continue to use our actions and voices to help build a truly reformed criminal justice system.

WHAT WE DO

court

ACCESS TO JUSTICE for the indigent and unjustly incarcerated-

We provide access to justice and legal representation to indigent awaiting trial inmates by working with trained law students and young lawyers who offer probono services to indigent inmates who we meet during prison visits. We leverage technology through our app “connectlawyer” to connect probono lawyers to indigent inmates across Nigeria. Our Capital Trial Clinic caters for the specific legal needs of indigent pre-trial detainees facing capital charges.

EMPOWERMENT for proper rehabilitation and re-intergration of inmates-


We are committed to building opportunities for the incarcerated to have a better life behind bars through empowering them to take charge of their life while in prison and as they return to the society to reduce recidivism.
