The esteemed Jackson College of Education (JCE) has recently extended its benevolent hand to the officers and inmates of Manhyia Local Prison in Kumasi. In furtherance of their unwavering commitment to the betterment of correctional facilities in the region.
The JCE through its Principal, Mrs Theodosia W. Jackson graciously donated an assortment of essentials including food, water, and drinks to the prison. In addition to these items were boxes containing bars of soap, gallons of liquid soap and gallons of bleach as well as packets of toilet roll. Whereas the officers in charge received hampers containing toiletries. This noteworthy gesture underscores the college’s dedication to serving the community and fostering positive change.
For many years, the College has been committed to giving back to our community by donating essential items such as food, detergents, medical supplies, and toiletries to Kumasi Central and Manhyia Prisons. In addition, they have provided monetary aid to these facilities and taken steps to improve their conditions. This includes renovating the washrooms at the Kumasi Central Prisons’ administration block and completely re-roofing the Manhyia Prison cell block. Our College is also dedicated to helping inmates successfully reintegrate into society by offering them skill training through the NVTI program.
Furthermore, the College’s philanthropic efforts extend beyond the Prisons Service. They have also provided support to other security services, such as the Police Service, to aid in their efforts to combat crime in the Ashanti Region.
