The Ivo Legal Aid program provides free legal representation and counselling to very poor and vulnerable indigent remand inmates that cannot afford the cost of securing legal representation for themselves. Under this program, priority will be given to remand inmates who have been awaiting trial for a very long time and those who are victims of human rights violations.
Care of children of Incarcerated persons
We offer specialized and comprehensive care to children of prison inmates (inclusive of counselling, family re-integration, and educational/vocational training). Through its care program, carried out in partnership with the Nigerian Prison Service, Ivo Foundation facilitates the effective implementation of the Child Rights Act within the Nigerian Prisons.
Imprisonment of one or both parents brings sorrow to families and the incarcerated individual. Through the Economic empowerment program, Ivo Foundation provides among others, skill training and small business start-up grants for ex-prisoners as well as education scholarships to their children and other children from indigent homes in order to reduce the rate of criminal recidivism and encourage them.
