A team of prisoners at Maghaberry have been producing braille books for children in south east Africa.
The books - including Walt Disney’s Peter Pan, Jungle Book and Bambi, as well as Roald Dahl’s The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me - were presented to three church charities for distribution in schools in Malawi, Tanzania and Kenya.
A dozen mostly life-sentence prisoners made them over a six-week period, with pages of braille created on special washable material and book covers manufactured by the inmates, before each was individually bound.
Prison Service head Ronnie Armour said: “This is an excellent example of how prisoners are making a real difference to the lives of people through rehabilitative activities.”
