ANCHOR HERITAGE EMPOWERMENT INITIATIVE

We are Anchor Heritage Initiative, an NGO duly registered and operational in Lagos, Nigeria. Our core objective is to see to the welfare of inmates in incarceration especially the less privileged who can’t afford legal assistance and a crop of those incarcerated unjustly. Our correctional facilities are overcrowded with awaiting trial individuals who spend time without access to fair hearing, legal representation, or opportunities to learn and grow, amidst the unemployment rate in Nigeria which causes inmates to struggle for means of survival when released. Our initiative is focused on giving legal aid, empowerment by training inmates on several skills and an after care support with mentorship after release from prisons to avoid recidivism. We have been able to secure the release of 90 inmates from seven prisons across the nation&trained over 840 inmates behind bars with success stories from some in our aftercare. We are committed to changing the narratives & align with #SDG10 &16
