Ubumi Prisons Initiative has since 2006 worked to improve the health of particularly vulnerable groups in Zambian correctional facilities. Ubumi means 'life - caring for everyone's life'. The name reflects our fundamental values, which are rooted in universal human rights, where the individual's right to life, health and dignity is at the centre of our efforts. Ubumi Prisons Initiative works to support children, juveniles and seriously/terminally ill in Zambian correctional facilities, as well as health, education and skills-building in more general terms.
We currently work in 12 facilities around Zambia: Kabwe (the three Mukobeko facilities), Chipata (Chipata Correctional Facility, male and female), Kitwe (Kamfinsa State Correctional Facility, male and female), Lusaka (Lusaka Central Correctional Facility, male and female), Kamwala (male), Katombora Reformatory School for juveniles (boys) and Chainama East Mental Hospital.
