Wells of Hope Safe Home that serves as a half way home for women who are leaving prison and cannot immediately go back to their families for various reasons last month concentrated on interaction with the women in prison and orienting them about the possibility of joining the home once they are released.
Francis Ssuubi, Wells of Hope founder and Shiphrah Nantongo, the Project Administrator interacted with the women at Women Prison Luzira and they appointed a leader among themselves; through her, they would register names ladies interested in joining the home after their release from prison. According to the information compiled, our assured occupant will leave prison on 1st June as she reconnects with her family. We are yet to start the orientation process.
Wells of Hope Safe Home also had its very first board meeting with a select committee
comprising Ms. Lydia Ssesanga from the Uganda Prisons service, MS Connie Numbi from the Foundation for Human Rights Initiative, Rev Christopher Onyuth from church of Uganda Luzira prisons Ministry team and Mr. Francis Ssuubi; who as a committee advised on how best to run the home and the possible ways the administrators can ensure sustainability amongst which was involving key stakeholders in the country through organizing the launch of the home and introducing it to the public for support and advocacy.
