The Nigerian prison system is a scary one indeed filled with uncertainties as over two third of inmates in the Nigerian prisons otherwise known as  Correctional centers are still awaiting trial. From our frequent visits to prisons through the Infinite Respite Prisons Ministration Outreach, we have seen that most of these yet to be convicted inmates are awaiting trial for as long as six years.

Can you imagine that?

Just imagine how someone will not see the sun, the moon and his family for as long as six years for a crime he or she knows nothing about. We have not talked about all the missed opportunities for these individuals alongside their inability to be educated and evolve as a normal human should.

This is why we at Infinite Respite Foundation continuously seek opportunities to check on inmates and provide education to them because we believe everyone has the right to be educated. This can be seen with the recent Establishment of The Education Center by Infinite Respite Foundation at the Old Medium Nigerian Custodian Centre, Nigeria Correctional Service, Suleja.

We are also recruiting volunteer teachers and we have gathered over 50 applications of volunteers who will teach these inmates subjects they sit for in acquiring the West African Examination Certificate. You can join us by clicking here to fill the volunteer form.

We believe with our undying mission and collective efforts, inmates shall greatly benefit from our educational programs and smile with confidence when they are back again into the society.
