The Project has been the only one of its kind in Kenya for over 36 years with its unique reputation for improving prisoners’ welfare, human rights, and livelihood besides ex-prisoners’ integration into the society has been felt all over the country.
We are driven by the commitment that “prisoners are people too” and their rights and welfare deserve our collective attention. A project that started vey humbly is now a national partner in minimizing stigma and exclusion of prisoners in national affairs. We have operated solely as the voice of the voiceless. As a result of our solid support and reputation the project has access to all Kenyan prisons. We have acted and still continue acting as brothers and friends of the inmates by ensuring that they get the best life during and after the sentence.
