Additional Info about Us

Up to 5 people

Lifesong Kenya is a supportive community that empowers at risk male teens who are in conflict with the law through skills, character fomentation, financial literacy, healing and reconciliation.

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, re-offending and chances of becoming hardened criminals.

What are you waiting for?

We at Lifesong Kenya would love to hear from you!
