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.
