About

The Prisoners’ Rights Defense Project aims to observe the conditions of detainees in the Cameroonian prison system and to subsequently give them assistance, both in a legal way and by trying to improve the above mentioned conditions. The Prisoners’ Rights Defense Project was originally created as a strong mean of control of the inhuman conditions of detainees in the Cameroonian prisons, in order to report lacks, abuses and acts of violence, especially related to human rights, and thus to improve the standards of living in jail. Interns will assess the prison conditions, give legal assistance to untried prisoners without sufficient financial means, cooperating with a number of pro bono lawyers who co-operate with Human IS Right. Interns will also contribute in developing the program even further to our next step: giving a second opportunity to people who were justly and moreover unjustly jailed. HISR will to assist prisoners after their release by primarily giving them an opportunity to find a job and therefore to be independent and create a new own life.
