Kingsly Ayamba – Prisons Livelihood Support Project

Kingsly Ayamba – Prisons Livelihood Support Project

Date grant awarded: August 17, 2019

In the southwest region of Cameroon, Kingsly Ayamba is working towards a holistic feeding program for the prisoners in the area as many prisons do not have the budget to feed their inmates. His work – Prisons Livelihood Support Project – builds capacity as well as engages and accompanies these individuals in establishing a fruit and vegetable farm. Kingsly noted the importance of this work, as he is a prison warden. He began to see that at times, inmates go a day without food.

For inmates who are HIV+, they are unable to take their medication on an empty stomach. This was when he decided to establish a program that not only complements the necessity for food but also empowers prisoners with the skills for a sustainable livelihood after their term is complete. Funds from The Pollination Project will help in acquiring local farming tools, seeds, and training supplies.
