African Dream

Graduation in Kenya


Our initial visit was in June 2016 and within eight months we managed to train thirty eight chaplains from Western and South Western Kenya in our Transformed inside programs. We returned for a follow-up meeting in June and were pleasantly surprised with the commitment and passion that these Chaplains displayed.

They have taken ownership of Transformed inside in their prisons. We saw the fruit of their passion as we visited six prisons and attended the graduation of 245 offenders. All our Transformed programs have been translated into Swahili. 


We have begun to negotiate with a large church organisation to begin training Pastors in a few selected cities. In March 2017 the vision of prison ministry was cast in two cities in Ethiopia. Presently all of the Transformed inside programs are being translated into Amharic.
