The Centre for Citizens Empowerment (CCE) has made some donations to the Senior Correctional Centre, formerly known as Borstal Institute, in Accra, Ghana. The NGO adopted the Centre and entered into a partnership agreement in which two retired magistrates will provide mentorship to inmates.
The Chairman of the Board of CCE, Mr. Daniel Owusu-Koranteng, encouraged the inmates to take advantage of the opportunities offered at the Centre, to enable them to play leadership roles in Ghana’s development. The items which were donated by CCE included buckets, toiletries, biscuits, chocolates and assorted drinks. Frances K. Agbomazi received the items on behalf of the Centre.
The acting Executive Director of the CCE, Mr. Isaac Asare, stated at the event that his organisation is a nonprofit that provides access to justice services, including legal aid services and alternative dispute resolution services, to the citizenry, particularly the poor and vulnerable.
