Youth Prison

In 2018 we started a partnership with a local Youth Prison. We work together with the chaplain and the officer in charge. They propose boys to us whom they believe would be a good fit to the farm or who have nowhere else to go.  We visit the prison to have Zumba sessions with the boys, share a devotion or encouragement and to interview the proposed boys to conform if they will fit the program. Some boys have waited quite some time for their sentence but once they have been tried as a minor, they get 4 months. In this case, we know when the date of release will be and can plan towards it. In other cases, they might be tried as an adult (their biggest fear), as a minor or be released by lack of evidence.  On the same day they are released we welcome them on the Osiligi Farm


When they go to the farm they often do not have proper clothes. You can help us by providing a proper set of clothes and a medical check.
