Saturday the 30th May, 2015 was a great day to 22 prisoners and one Prison Warden at the Mikuyu prison in Zomba. The prisoners graduated from CFME’s business training which was being conducted in partnership with Byonique trust from Netherlands. The original class had 26 participants but three prisoners were released three days before the graduation day.
Speaking during the function, the regional commander of Prisons in Eastern Region of Malawi Mrs. Catherine Ngwira hailed CFME for considering the prisons. “Prisoners are normal people and most of them had big plans before they came here. Unfortunately, their plans cannot be accomplished because they are here. But what CFME is doing will enable these people to re start their journeys to economic prosperity once they are released from prison” said Mrs Ngwira. She hailed CFME for being courageous to speak freely about the principles of free trade, economic freedom and entrepreneurship because they are vital for the country’s development
“CFME’s Programs Director Mr. Pilirani Banda said his organization is committed to improving the lives of Malawians through the entrepreneurship and principles of free trade. He said business which is done in a free environment, is capable of bringing massive economic development to any country. He added that CFME will reach out to many prisons as much as possible with this training.
