Short description:
As a prison based Non Governmental Organisation (NGO), PRISCCA endeavors to partner and collaborate with various stakeholders in both private and public sector to help Government balance the three major principles of imprisonment-retribution, deterrent and rehabilitation and to promote advocacy, networking and social research for effective service delivery. PRISCCA also seeks to address the health, socio-economic, legal and human rights needs of serving and ex inmates through coordinated efforts with government, civil society and private sector partners.
