Lifesong Kenya is a supportive community that empowers teenage boys to exiting juvenile prison with employable skills. Research shows that boys who exit prison with employable skills have better chances of overcoming stigma and rejection from family and the community.

This helps reduce recidivism and reoffending.

What We Do
Boys who get the opportunity to exercise their creativity often become better problem solvers
 
Vision and Mission
 
Our vision is to reconcile teenage boys and the communities they have hurt through crime and reduce recidivism and crime through job skills training.
 
Our mission is to facilitate healing, hope, personal and spiritual growth through teaching employable skills. We seek to provide a platform for reconciliation and reentry back to families and the community.
 

 “Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.”

“I met James Ouma in 2014, when he was teaching girls about their value as young women and as people. I have met few people who have a heart for those who are in difficult situations, in prison and other seemingly hopeless places.”
