Justice For All – Prison Fellowship Ethiopia (JFA-PFE), is 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 holistically handling them. 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 the prevalence of justice which is very fundamental to enhance and sustain the development of the country.


JFA-PFE’s advocacy interventions focuses on restoring systemic issues including legal, policy and institutional limitations.
