Massive Thank You To

All Our Volunteers & Board Members!


POP is very grateful to its current and previous volunteers for their invaluable contribution to our organisation. The work of POP would not be possible without their time and effort.


Ankie Ulrich

Ankie has assisted POP in the Netherlands by helping with raising funds and by promoting and selling products made in prison since the start of the organisation. In 2012, she visited Uganda and assisted with our Tailoring Skills Project in Gulu.


Anke Rijntjes

Anke Rijntjes volunteered with POP for a month in January 2013. Among other things, she assisted with the construction of our candle workshop in the remand prison in Kampala and with the development of the first candles. Anke works as a Manager Revenue & Channels at Stayokay in Amsterdam, but continues to help POP in her spare time with the sale of prison products.


Bosco Mukiibi 

In 2012, Bosco was a participant in our Career Skills training in Luzira Upper Prison. After completing the training, he became a Career Skills trainer for POP and trained many of his fellow inmates. After his release in 2015, he was given a job at the Radio Station in Fort Portal as a result of having trained the owner of the radio station in Career Skills in prison. Bosco now volunteers with POP and trains prisoners in Fort Portal in Career Skills and Reintegration Skills.

Thijs worked as our first Business Development Manager in Kampala from 2014 to 2016 to ensure that our work can continue. Thijs has now returned to the Netherlands, but is still involved with organising our Uganda Cycling Challenge.
