We currently work in many parts of Africa helping young people into education, supporting families, providing footwear, providing sanitary wear, supporting the local prison and more. We have projects that have helped people in Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, however much of our work is currently focused on Malawi.
Hope for Juveniles is a ten year old faith-based organisation founded and run by Yohane Yakobe and Kennedy Zakochera
Primarily it works in Kachere Juvenile prison providing education, pastoral and practical help to prisoners and staff. Numbers in the prison have doubled from 80 to 200 in the past ten years. H for J has provided better cooking facilities and sanitation
Kachere prison used to house 80 prisoners aged 11-18. It now holds over 200 in poor conditions where disease such as cholera is often a danger.
In 2016 Christians in South Yorkshire raised over £1000 to supply food to the prison when the government decided to stop feeding prisoners.
RBB provided finance to provide a gas burner and gas bottles to cook the prisoners’ food instead of using wood cut down from non-sustainable sources. Malawi is suffering from desertification due to the destruction of forests for cooking fuel and charcoal production.
Happy Feet Project
Footwear has been sent to the children in Kings Orphanage, Kenya and giving out to many desperate families in Malawi.
Ending Period Poverty
As part of the End Period Poverty campaign over 3000 sanitary towels were sent to rural Zambia, with many girls missing schools and being house due to having nothing during their period we knew we had to step up and help.
