Founding Story

I was born from a father who works as a warden. He knew exactly what kind of violence that happens in prison and a squeeze of pain, shame and fear felt by inmates because of the negative stigma attached to them will continue after they are exit from the prison. Through this program I would like to open up mind that inmates also have the same right to live better and are entitled to their HOPE. The program is simple but I'm sure will provide impact to social, education, human rights, entrepreneurship and personality inmates themselves.
