Surfline Communications Ltd. has donated Internet routers to the Senior Correctional Centre (James Camp Prisons) at Roman Ridge in Accra.
The Senior Correctional Centre is the only functional correctional facility for juvenile offenders in the country, with the mandate to reform juvenile offenders committed to it.
According to the Deputy Director of Prisons Regional Commander/Officer in Charge, Al-Hassan Naah Nihii, Information Communication Technology (ICT) skills acquisition and development has been identified by the management as pivotal in its educational activities and programmes in order to make juveniles at the Centre functional, relevant and resourceful in the community upon discharge. Surfline, in a bid to support this innovative programme, donated routers with accompanying data bundles to the Centre.
Commenting on the donation, the Ag. Commercial Director of Surfline, Jacob Plange-Rhule, stated that this falls within the company’s Community Engagement Support Programme whereby Surfline supports institutions in their quest to acquire and improve ICT skills, which is a dependable and cost-effective means of enhancing corporate and organisational development around the globe.
