Welcome to PW-SL – Site Still under construction


We are a Sierra Leonean NGO founded in 1996. We are a small team inspired by their Human Rights conviction who have worked together for the protection of the Rights of people in detention.

Since our inception, we have monitored and reported on prisons and detention conditions and provided training for detention officers and Civil Society members on Human Rights. The driving force behind our work is to ensure that people deprived of their liberty are held in safe custody and under humane conditions.

We believe that People should be sent to Prisons as punishment and not for punishment. We view the deprivation or the restriction of individuals either as a result of law or court order as punishment in itself.
