Ontmoet ons team!


Ons zeer gemotiveerde team werkt met om gevangenen een mooiere toekomst te bieden.


Founding Director

Celesta heeft een achtergrond in criminologie en internationaal recht. Ze heeft Product of Prison opgericht na werk ervaring te hebben opgedaan in gevangenissen in Burundi en Oeganda en na de moeilijkheden te hebben gezien die gevangenen ondervinden om de vicieuze cirkel van armoede en criminaliteit te doorbreken. Door zich te richten op rehabilitatie, wil ze gevangenen helpen om zelfredzaam te worden en ze een kans te geven op een nieuw leven na de gevangenis. Celesta is verantwoordelijk voor het managen van POP’s activiteiten in Oeganda.

Country Manager

Alix leads our work in Uganda, with oversight of all projects, and manages the staff and volunteers, and the relationship with the Uganda Prisons Service (UPS). She is the main liaison with our funders, and reports quarterly to UPS.

Fundraising and Business Development

Before attending the University of Lincoln in the UK, Brian spent five months in Uganda volunteering for a small charitable organisation headquartered in his hometown of Coleraine, Northern Ireland. Captivated by the beauty of the country and the people (and by the sunshine!), he was determined to return.

In the summer of 2012 he returned to Uganda for one month, along with a friend, to tour and to undertake research for his dissertation, which was a study on the socio-cultural and political impact of radio in Uganda.

Following several years working for charities across the UK, Brian decided the time was right to return to Uganda on a more permanent basis and pursued a tantalising opportunity with POP.

Brian is responsible for the organisation’s fundraising and marketing activities, ensuring that POP runs its projects in a financially sustainable and effective manner, and keeping donors and supporters up to date on our work.
