Meet Nicole Brakohiapa and Channel Poku-Amankwah, FJI's Summer 2018 interns:
Ruth joined FJI as an intern in October 2018. She holds an LLM in International Law and International Relations from the University of Bristol (2017). She has over four years of legal work experience at the African Law Society Forum, Avon & Bristol Law Centre and Bristol Crown Court and is passionate about access to justice. Ruth's internship is focused on legal research, both to assist the legal team in their case work and to support FJI's supporting projects with the inmates of Nsawam Prison.
Kwame is a qualified lawyer (Ghana School of Law, 2016) with over five years of experience in the financial services industry. He supports FJI's legal team part-time on a pro bono basis.
It costs GHc 150 per month to support an inmate's basic needs through our care package programme, or GHc 250 to add help us support the cost of their educational and medical bills.
