Prison Care and Counseling Association (PRISCCA)

Prison Care and Counselling Association (PRISCCA) is a registered non-governmental organization founded by ex-prisoners in 1997.

PRISCCA is a membership-based organization drawing its members from prisons and the communities at large. Its main objective is to complement government efforts in improving prison conditions and ensuring that prisoners access their rights countrywide through the promotion of a balanced humane system of imprisonment and ex-prisoners reintegration into society.

The Government through the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Prisons Command has given PRISCCA the authority to operate in all prisons around the country.

PRISCCA has adapted the paralegal model of Malawi by training long-term prisoners to provide legal advice in prisons.
