A Charming and Heartwarming Encomiums: From our Students in Prison

As I walk and work in the prisons in Nigeria, I see potentials, I see solutions to human problem caged, I see time and energy that can be converted into products and service, I also see windows with bars, long fences and constant present prison officers watching over the inmates to prevent them from escaping.

Can they escape, what will happen if they are apprehended once an attempt for escape is made, is physical escape not dangerous to their lives.

In other to help them escape from what I called the “imprisonment of the mind” Dream Again Prison & Youth Foundation has been educating and training inmates in Otukpo prisons to help them utilize their time and energy in adding value to themselves so that when release they can be useful to themselves and the society at large

We believe that when we “Educate and train a prisoner, we are making the society better and safer”

Here are some heartwarming and praises from our Dream Again Students in Otukpo Prison, Benue State Nigeria.

A.O. As a timid child and an illiterate person Dream Again has illuminated my world

The man I respect so much:

Mahatma Gandhi said;
You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.

If they succeed in imprisoning the mind of the prisoners via incarceration instead of creating facilities and avenue within the prison that will not duck the prisoner potentials and dreams, then the purpose of imprisonment is not been achieve.

Knowing fully well that mind imprisonment is worse than physical prison, me and my team have embarked on a journey and we are serving as the catalyst for prisoners to escape the imprisonment of the mind while in incarceration.

We are committed to make our society a better place.
