2013 Advocate Geoffrey Mayamba is in a unique position to know the challenges faced by those who are or have been incarcerated in Zambia. At the age of 17, Geoffrey was arrested for his role as a lookout during a robbery. He served 10 years in prison. While serving his sentence, Geoffrey studied project planning and monitoring & evaluation. After an early release for good behavior, Geoffrey secured a position with a PEPFAR-funded project on HIV/AIDS. The project included research visits to prisons in Zambia–including the one where Geoffrey had served his sentence.
