Jackson College of Education (JCE) has donated assorted items including food, water and drinks to the Manhyia Local Prison in Kumasi. The donation which coincided with Christmas forms part of the College’s quest to continuously support the facility and other prison facilities in the region.
For many years, the College has been donating essential items including food, detergents, toiletries, medical supplies as well as cash to the Kumasi Central and Manhyia Prisons as well as renovating the washrooms at the administration block of the Kumasi Central Prisons and also re-roofing the entire cell block of the Manhyia Prison which was badly leaking. Inmates of these correctional facilities have also received support to undergo skills training through the NVTI programme to help them in their reformation and integration back into society.
These kind gestures have not been limited to the Prisons Service alone as other security services such as the Police Service have also over the years received support in various capacities to augment their operations to combat crime in the Ashanti Region.
