A Prison Visit

In 2012, Temesgen visited a friend’s sister in Hawassa Prison. He noticed others who needed help and asked himself, “Who else was visiting pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers?” And what about youth and children whose parents were incarcerated?
Immediately, he began supporting women and children in prison and in their daily lives.


Consulting Prisoners & Networking

The prison’s principal gave Temesgen T. Abo information about supporting prisoners. Temesgen consulted prisoners about their needs. The principals also helped Temesgen establish support networks for other prisons in Dilla, Hlaba, Durame, Hossanea and Wolaita Sodo. They supplied some materials. SLCO rented cars for distribution.


In 2014, another academic donated his services as coordinator of volunteers. In 2019, the academic who had become Ethiopian diaspora loaned SLCO the money to buy a small car for transporting supplies. Today, SLCO supports prisoners and their children who attend schools in Hawassa, Dilla, Halaba, Durame, Hossaina, Wolaita Sodo, Butajira, Worabe, Wolkite, Debra- Berhan, and Adama,
