From Prison to organic Farmer/Manager

Here’s the story of our student aftercare service for ex-con C.E.P., who had spent over six years in prison both in Makurdi and in Otukpo.

He joined the Dream Again Academy in 2012. His passion for learning and his leadership traits while in prison made him to rise to the post of Dream Again Secretary until his release from prison. As a leader of the foundation among his peers, he helped in coordinating other students (prisoners) for sessions, taking attendance and ensuring they were well- behaved. Upon his liberation, C.E.P. showed great interest in agriculture and its value chain; so, in order to help him become a professional farmer, Dream Again Prison and Youth Foundation secured sponsorship for him to study Organic Farming and Green House Construction in Saki, Oyo State. He also learnt local manure production. He has since graduated, gained experience as a farm manager in Abeokuta, Ogun State and now runs his own business on the platform of his registered company.
