Project Phoenix

The new chapter

Learnira’s Project Phoenix is working to prepare incarcerated persons to acquire digital skills through training that prepares them for integration into society and make them ready for the job market.

We are empowering incarcerated individuals in the Ghana Prisons Service at both the juvenile and adult sections with digital skills, coding skills, access to online formal educational courses that offer certification and re-entry support programs to help them when released.

THE PROBLEM

 With the accelerating rate of technological development, most inmates today would be left behind not having the appropriate skills to participate in their communities once they are reintegrated.

 23% 

From 1992 to 2013 the rate of inmates that have reoffended increased by 23% (Ghana Prisons Service, 2013)

6k

An average of 6,000 inmates are discharged yearly

22%

 The recidivism percentage rate in Ghana had been fluctuating from 21% in 2004 through to 19.3% in 2008 and to 22.2% in 2011

THE GHANA PRISONS SERVICE SUCCESS STORY

Acces to formal education online 

Our goal is to provide learners access to formal education of their choice that can be achieved via an e-learning portal. Courses are to be taken from accredited institutions both local and international.

After Release Programs

Reducing recidivism is one of the key metrics that we are measuring.  We believe that the toughest part of our job will be in assisting our students with re-entry into society. We will be partnering with as many organizations to help with job placement, continuous education, and every other support for a seamless transition.

Pilot Phase

Project Phoenix is currently at the pilot phase, and we are working with the Ghana Prisons Service - Senior Correctional Centre. This is the only facility in Ghana that serves juveniles and young offenders.

Our goal is to work with the juvenile center first, evaluate our methodology, and scale to other facilities across the country.
