New Leaf Foundation is a non-governmental, non-partisan, non-profit (501) (c) (3) organization established in 2015 to provide support to inmates in prisons in the West African country of Nigeria. New Leaf Foundation is focused on providing the tools, opportunities, and inspirational programs that help inmates make responsible decisions and avoid repeat offenses. Our programs are dedicated to bringing positive change, offering education, and helping prisoners fulfill their individual life mandates and dreams.
Our Mission is to meet people at the crossroads of life. We endeavor to transform the cycle of hopelessness into a pathway of hope by using human skills and resources to resuscitate the brokenhearted. We desire to change the helpless suffering caused by injustice into a successful reintegration into society.
Our Vision is to serve as a portal through which the downtrend can facilitate and access justice, improve the unjust conditions of their incarceration, and receive succor.
Our philosophy is one of turning despair into hope. We must catalyze the improvement of Nigeria’s justice system. Change must be made to Nigeria’s prisons: they must cease to be death traps and become a place of learning and reform. We can provide the means for incarcerated individuals to leave prison as productive members of society instead of broken, bitter failures, and we will relentlessly pursue all avenues of reform to positively impact the life of each individual prisoner.
