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 for 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 interview the proposed boys to confirm if they will fit the program.
Some boys have to go through their sentence first while others can be placed at the Osiligi farm instead of their sentence; as a pilot program to test the effectiveness of the diversion program. This is a pilot program from the prison that is proving effective. On the same day they are released we welcome them on the Osiligi farm.
