Centre For Legal Support & Inmate Rehabilitation (CELSIR)

We’re a Non-governmental Organization committed to rendering free legal support to indigent Incarcerated Individuals and also rehabilitation assistance that equips Incarcerated and formerly Incarcerated Individuals with life skills capable of sustaining them when reunited to the society


Everybody deserves a second chance

CELSIR strongly believes in the power of fairness, learning, and kindness. Our main goal is to protect the rights and respect of people who have been in Prison. It is our mission also to curb the alarming cycle of recidivism prevalent among incarcerated individuals, as result of the formidable challenges they encounter when reintegrating into society. CELSIR’s holistic rehabilitation support envelops our beneficiaries, guiding them through a process of renewal and empowerment. Our continuum of care extends seamlessly to post-incarceration life, ensuring that individuals are equipped with the tools and support required to reintegrate successfully.

Our Vision

We envision a society where the indigent and vulnerable persons have access to free legal representation and justice-impacted individuals live a dignified and productive lifestyle when reunited to the society.

Our Mission

To foster positive change within the lives of incarcerated individuals by addressing the multiple facets of their journey, from pre-incarceration to reintegration into society. We are driven by a profound belief in second chances and the potential for growth, healing, and a positive reentry journey.
