Changing lives in Zambian prisons
Ubumi helps children, mothers, pregnant women, juveniles and the seriously ill patients, and we support education and reintegration in Zambian prisons.
Prisoners in Africa live under harsh condition: Overcrowding, unhygienic facilities, social isolation, lack of access to health and sufficient food put them at risk of disease and death.
Not only do all human beings have a right to a dignified life, but imprisonment should never be life threatening. Ubumi focuses on the particularly vulnerable in prison; circumstantial children, mothers and pregnant women, seriously ill patients, but also education and reintegration - hand in hand with Zambia Correctional Service and the inmates themselves.
