The Halfway House/ Das Halfway Haus

 

flagbritain.jpg Our Halfway House, located in the Northern suburbs of Nairobi, provides emergency accommodation for up to 10 mothers with young children upon their release from prison. Here, mothers and children are reunited, often for the first time in years. Along with counseling, spiritual and moral support, and civic education, the women rebuild their self-confidence for reintegration into society. Specifically, the Nest offers imprisoned mothers and their extended families the following services:

  • Counseling
  • Advice on how to get legal assistance
  • Support with bureaucratic matters

Following release, the Nest empowers mothers economically through enrollment in credit schemes, training courses, self-help groups, and by helping the women find employment. All of the Nest’s activities are carried out in close cooperation with the officials of Prison Headquarters, Children’s Court and the Children’s Department.

Hier findet die Zusammenführung mit ihren Kindern aus dem Nest Kinderheim statt; hier können sie einen neuen Lebensplan aufstellen; hier entstehen Selbsthilfegruppen. Durch Familien- und Rechtsberatung, Unterstützung bei Behördengängen, Kleinkreditvergabe und Jobbörse versucht das Projekt entlassenen Müttern den Weg zurück in die Gesellschaft zu ermöglichen.
