Current Focus

EIO is currently focusing on the advocacy and intervention on activities involving reformation, reintegration and rehabilitation of prison inmates in the North Central region of Nigeria including Benue, Nassarawa, Niger, Kogi and Plateatu States, and FCT, Abuja, Nigeria. Concern is placed higher here on the ‘returning citizens’ – that is the freed inmates who, out of frustration, preferred prison than remaining a frustrated fellow in the society.

Life after prison can be frustrating and challenging and this is definitely true. When it comes to rehabilitation, funding freed incarcerated to reintegrate properly in the society often present great challenge. Besides, the courage to face stigmatization and some forms of rejection becomes obvious that the freed incarcerated persons prefer to return to prison than being so identified and dejected. In view of the above, Earthspring developed a program called “Take Them Out and Keep Them Out” (T.O.K.O). TOKO would be used as an advocacy instrument/program to support the courage to remain being reitegrated than returning to the prison out of frustration and thus reduce ‘return to prisons preferences’.
