Background info

In 1984, while Fr Grol was on leave, one of the rehabilitated street boys – Joseph Maina Mwangi – stole some money from the institution and the administrator took him to police for ‘theft by servant’.

The boy was jailed and taken to Athi River GK Prison. Fr. Grol’s passion to render support to prisoners was greatly inspired by this street boy as he kept visiting him.

Fr. Grol’s conviction that correction supersedes condemnation led him to support the jailed street boy by encouraging and supporting him to build on skills that earned an honest living while in prison.

Upon release from prison the boy engaged the carpentry skills learnt while serving his sentence to make furniture for sale.  He has since successfully earned a modest living to date.

Fr. Grol served at St Theresa’s Parish for 23 years till the time of his death at the age of 74. Hence forth, the same visionary approach towards rehabilitation of inmates has led to many victorious experiences.

Owing to frail health and old age Fr. Grol deployed the responsibility of his welfare projects to the Brothers of Our Lady Mother of Mercy (CCM) in 1997 under the leadership of Brother Linus Schoutsen.

This is a short documentary of what we do at Fr. Grol’s Welfare Trust.

We focus in improving the living conditions of the offenders while in prison through education, health & sanitation, officers’ attitude improvement, counseling and recreation, and aftercare support after their service
