In 2014, eMentoring Africa visited Naivasha Maximum Prison in the company of Ms. Jayne Marquard, a sponsor of the Inmates Educational Program. From this visit, a decision was reached to offer a holistic mentorship program with an overall goal of helping inmates to have a good quality life in and out of prison. The pilot program is designed to enhance the existing rehabilitation programs and achieve the following objectives:
To date, we have taken the PASS IT ON program as a way of encouraging the high school leavers on the way forward after the KCSE. Similarly, together with students from the Student Leadership Ambassadors’ Program (SLAP), we are offering academic mentorship to encourage those in school to excel in their studies despite their prevailing circumstances.
