TOGETHER WE CAN

Empower Exceptional Young Men to Exit Prison with Employable Skills.

WHO WE ARE

We are a Community Based Organization that seeks to involve teenage offenders, their families, the people they have wronged and the community in restorative justice.

We empower boys in conflict with the law to exit prison with employable skills. By doing so, we make it possible for the boys to gain the skills they need to face stigma and rejection that comes with being in prison.

We have been featured on various TV Shows, news and blogs for our effort of helping boys and exceptional young men in Kenya. Some of our efforts include:

  • Running a shop to support our prison program
  • Teaching boys ICT and computer skills
  • Connecting boys in conflict with the law with their family, the people they have wronged and the community
  • Cycling to raise funds and provide a half way house for boys exciting juvenile prison

WHAT WE DO

Being there

We are always there to help boys make sense of the circumstances they’ve found themselves in while in prison. 

This helps them to come to terms with what has happened, seek to address the wrong and harm they have caused to their familes and the people they’ve hurt and chart a new path.

Offering skills

Education is the ideal tool for empowering teenage offenders and our desire is that every teenage offender receives the right tool. 

We are equipping the prison Computer Lab and ensuring that we provide the best learning experience.

Reducing stigma

75% of boys who exit juvenile prison often face stigma and rejection from their families and their community. As a result, they often end up re-offending and coming back to prison as hardened criminals.

We are trying to reduce this through our intervention and won’t stop until we get there.

Rebuilding

Juvenile offenders often spend time in detention blaming themselves, their families and the people they have wronged. 

This being so, their self esteem and confidence is completely shattered and needs rebuilding.  Our first step is to help them replace old habits with new thoughts and way of doing things.

Reconciliation

When crime and offence happens, relationships are ruined. As a result, conflicts happens and people who used to relate well don’t see eye to eye. 

Our duty and responsibility is to provide a forum for healing and reconciliation between our boys, their families and the people they have hurt. 

Relationships

We rely on building and developing relationships with various stakeholders that include wonderful people like you!

Our success cannot be possible without help from others. We are grateful for those who continue to volunteer their time and skills and generous donations and giving.
