Dear Friends, Partners and Stakeholders,

Justice For All – Prison Fellowship Ethiopia, for more than two decades, has been undertaking various activities with the purpose of promoting respect and protection of human rights, upholding principles of good governance and rule of law which are indispensible for prevalence of justice in Ethiopia. Our program intervention mainly focuses on developing the capacity of government officials through comprehensive awareness-raising trainings and refreshing their knowledge on human rights, good governance and rule of law so that they are aware in translating them into practical actions while executing and delivering their day to day service.

This webpage is therefore, intended to give a highlight on our program intervention that we have been carrying out through the support obtained from our partners. Of course, none of the achievements would have been possible without the key role played by the justice sector institutions of the Ethiopian government, support of our donors, and the dedication of our staff. Hence, I would like to express my utmost gratitude to our partners and stakeholders for their support and further hope for continued partnership that we believe would contribute to the realization of the desired goal. At this juncture, we want to underline that we will continue striving for excellence to contribute our level best through implementing our gap-filling program.

Last but not least, I would like to extend my invitation to you to read this informative webpage that presents highlight of our program, believing that it can inspire you to partake in our endeavor that envisions Ethiopia become successful in its human rights obligations and dedications for citizens’ development and realization of nation-wide development goals.

God Bless Ethiopia!

Justice For All - Prison Fellowship Ethiopia (JFA-PFE), initially known by the name “Prison Fellowship Ethiopia (PFE)”, was founded in 1992 as a non-government organization in the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE). Since its establishment, JFA-PFE has been working on the improvement of prisoners’ lives and handling them in its holistic manner. Later on in 2006, it became evident that improving prisoners’ wellbeing requires embracing the entire justice sector and this led the organization to gradually expand into the area of promoting human rights, good governance and rule of law in Ethiopia. As a result, the then Prison Fellowship Ethiopia (PFE) restructured itself as “Justice for All - Prison Fellowship Ethiopia” (JFA-PFE).To date, the organization is making gap-filling interventions in the justice system of Ethiopia for prevalence of justice which is very fundamental to enhance and sustain development of the country.
