Ghana: 10-year strategic plan to transform prisons

The Ghana Prisons Council is to launch a 10-year strategic plan that will transform the country’s prisons into reformation centres.

According to the council, it would help mobilise resources to drive the agenda for the reforms to ensure that prisoners did not only live in a conducive environment but also acquired employable skills while in prison.

One of such fundraising initiatives is dubbed ‘Efiase.’

The Chairman of the Council, Reverend Dr Stephen Wengam, who was among the First Lady’s delegation to the United States of America (USA), disclosed this to the Daily Graphic in an interview at a joint luncheon organised by the Helping Africa Foundation (HAF) and the Yale Alumni Association in New York.
