The Day We Visited Two Prisons

Øystein and I continue our sad story from Maula prison in Lilongwe, Malawi. As we wrote last week, after a visit ten years ago, our story about the prison resulted in a real change in the way Malawian authorities treat their criminal youth. Instead of being incarcerated with grownups they are now confined to a special prison for adolescence. The big question is still if their conditions have improved at all.

For the whole story and pictures have a look at Øystein & Otto’s blog.

  1. A strong and haunting image that makes you really think abut what is happening behind the door the guards are protecting. This image is made more prevalent when reading you full post. Thank you for being you Otto and for your fight for change
