CHARITY IS LOVE FOUNDATION VISITS NSAWAM FEMALE PRISON

During interaction with some inmates, it came to the fore that most of them had young children before their imprisonment, but they were currently living with relatives who could hardly
make ends meet to provide all round care for their children. The engagement brought to the fore the thorny problems faced by mothers in prison; children of women in prison are mostly traumatized by the arrest of their mother and the sudden forced separation imprisonment brings. Most women interviewed reported never receiving visits from their children and others restricting their children from visiting due to anxiety and depression effects during such visitations.

One prisoner confessed she was arrested together with her husband three years ago with their case pending before court. However, even though she has been granted Bail, the conditions attached to her Bail, were very high and she was not able to satisfy them, leading to her continuous confinement.

Interacting with the inmates, officials of the Foundation explained that, the main objective of the Foundation is to ensure that interested prisoners are trained to acquire skills or vocation with which they can make a living after their release from prison and hinted that the hard working ones who demonstrate interest in learning a trade and capacity to enter into their own economic ventures will be supported financially to resettle when they finish their prison sentences.

The Chief Executive Officer of Charity Is Love Foundation, Ms. Baffour-Awuah attributed the visitation to the core mandate of the Foundation thus to help all categories of prisoners to reform, rehabilitation and return to the society as law abiding and responsible citizens.

Furthermore, the foundation is committed to support women prisoners with vocational and skills training, education, counseling and mentoring programs. Ms Baffour-Awuah was happy to have a team which boast of people with varied background and enormous experience in corrections and policing, clergy as well as education and social workers, which is an advantage for an NGO with the goal of reforming, rehabilitating and resetting offenders into law abiding and responsible persons.
