In line with its promise to build five (5) settlement camp prisons for the Ghana Prisons Service to help decongest the country’s prisons, the Church of Pentecost has handed over the first finished project located in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
According to the images shared by one Fabian Acolatse on Facebook, the facility has a training centre where inmates could train to acquire skills in sewing etc.
Earlier, the PRO for the Ghana Prisons Service revealed the skills training is to equip the inmates with vocational qualities so that when they come out of the prisons they can set up their own businesses rather than becoming a burden on society.
He said the projects would be for the confinement of reasonably trustworthy prisoners, who would be engaged on government and other official projects.
In 2019 when the church announced its plans of building such facilities, it was met with scorn from many who believed it was an unworthy venture.
However, reliable information available to scoopyvibes.com suggests the project forms part of a five˗year strategic vision of the church, dubbed “Vision 2023”, with the overarching theme: “Possessing the Nations: Equipping the church to transform every sphere of society with values and principles of the Kingdom of God.”
