Prisoners’ Future Foundation (PFF) is a non-governmental organization that was established in 2007 to look into the welfare of serving and former prisoners,including citizens who, though un-convicted, have come in contact with the criminal justice system. This was in response to identified major challenges in the criminal justice system that called for the participation of other actors to complement government efforts.Key strategic statements that have emerged include the following:
• PFF Vision – A society in which the rights and other needs of serving and former prisoners are understood, respected and upheld
• PFF Mission – PFF is committed to utilizing evidence-based mechanisms in advocacy, and in providing opportunities for empowerment and representation so as to respond to the needs of both serving and former prisoners

Mayamba Geoffrey Kuletela Executive Director and Founder Prisoners Future Foundation Zambia Committed to improving the welfare of prisoners in Zambia, Mayamba Geoffrey Kuletela is the Executive Director and Founder of Prisoners Future Foundation (PFF). Pardoned after serving 10 years of a 16-year sentence, Geoffrey co-founded PFF as a “mouth piece” for prisoners after he and others realized the needs of prisoners would continue to be unmet without sustained advocacy efforts. Geoffrey has been leading the organization in addressing the myriad challenges facing prisoners such as congestion in the prisons, the lack of healthcare especially for individuals living with HIV/AIDS or tuberculosis and those who are pregnant, the need for nurseries and educational opportunities, and the dangers facing juveniles who are imprisoned with adults. The organization advocates for an end to the death penalty and for empowering ex-prisoners through loans from micro financing institutions. Shortly after being released from prison in 2007, Geoffrey worked for a PEPFAR-funded organization that provided care to those with HIV/AIDS. He then conducted research for a prison audit before joining the Kanyama Youth Project as a training manager. In January 2011, he devoted himself full-time to PFF, which was founded in 2007. The organization was run on an all-volunteer basis for its first two years due to lack of funding. Geoffrey holds the International Honors Graduate Diploma and MBA from Cambridge International College and diplomas in Project Planning and Management from the University of Zambia and Monitoring and Evaluation from Cavendish University (Zambia)
