This film by IRIN Films focuses on AdvocAid, one of Namati’s partner organisations in Sierra Leone. AdocAid’s paralegals are trained by Namati and this moving film illustrates the important work that they do.
Women Behind Bars tries to understand why prison rates for women in Sierra Leone are soaring. Twelve years after the long civil war came to an end, its broken institutions and weak development indicators continue to have an impact on the lives of its people. Aside from the usual grim data, one statistic stands out: the number of female prisoners has doubled over the past three years.
