Kwaw Kese and his team are hoping to give most of Ghana’s prisons the needed infrastructure injection.

“I am sure most of you have heard or watched the ‘locked and forgotten’ documentary which exposed the true state of our prisons in Ghana.

It is from experience that I assure you that the situation is more devastating than it can ever be told in a documentary.

My personal experiences from prison has really touched and moved me to contribute my little quota to help our brothers and sisters who have been incarcerated.

This is to provide some form of training and skill for prison inmates before leaving the walls of the prison to enable to be reintegrated back into the society after serving their terms
,” he said addressing the media on Tuesday.

Kwaw Kese said the foundation has been set up to also educate the public on dangers of substance abuse.
