For the past 25 years, CAPIO has focused part of its interventions on providing free legal representation for prisoners, as well as advocating for legal and prison reforms in Nigeria. However, little or nothing has been done by CAPIO to utilize crime preventive strategies in its fight to reduce crime and criminality in the society. This necessitated the idea to design an intervention titled “Mobilization against Criminal Activities project for vulnerable youths in Enugu State” with funding from Misean cara. This project targets the youths, with a view to meaningfully engaging them through the media, to discuss factors and lifestyles that predispose young people to crime. It is intended that these discussions will engender positive attitudes in the youths, potentially saving them from the horrors of prison.
