“When we educate and train a prisoner, we are making the society safer and better for all”
Dream Again Academy empowers inmates in prison to constructively utilize their and energy while in incarceration to add value to them.
According to a 2010 study of recidivism in Nigerian prisons conducted by Dr. Chiedu Abrifor of Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, there has been a persistent rise in the trend of released ex-convicts going back to crime in recent years. The rate was 35 percent in 2007, 44 percent in 2008 and 52.4 percent in 2010.
We empower our students to Dream Again.
We set up library in prisons and with our progressive educational program that runs in prison; we help inmates in prison to constructively utilize their time and energy to add value to them so that when they are released, they can become asset to their family and our nation at large.
This dream starts to live precisely in 2012 with establishing the first functional library in Otukpo prison, Benue state, Nigeria, West Africa. With book donations trickling in from quotas, with a high hope of reaching five thousand (5000) books target for every library the organization establishes for each prison across Nigeria, and later beyond. The organization was officially registered with the corporate affairs of Nigeria in 2014.
