Cameroon initiative helps young violent offenders become ‘prisonpreneurs,' peace builders

To give young people in prison hope and a second chance, a new organization known as Creative Skills for Peace attempts to teach inmates about entrepreneurship and job training, as well as civic education and peacebuilding. Achaleke Christian Leke, the founder, hopes to create “prisonpreneurs.” Whether teaching them to make crafts or run greenhouses, Creative Skills for Peace is empowering inmates to empower others.
