Prisons Care and Counseling Association (PRISCCA) is working to improve access to justice for pretrial detainees in order to reduce prison overcrowding and curb human rights abuses. PRISCCA sends paralegals and lawyers to visit prisons to help provide legal assistance and identify cases that need urgent attention. In addition, PRISCCA is holding a series of workshops on defendants’ rights with detainees at each of Zambia’s provincial prisons.
