This is a story of just how far $15 can go. “Deepa’s story is an amazing testimony of why giving children the chance to go to school and attend fun social events can dramatically change their relationships, their status, their sense of self-worth, and their outlook on life,” says International Director of the Children of Prisoners Sponsorship Program Adam Hutchinson.

pfi.org For many girls in India, education is still a luxury. Girls are often pulled out of school to help care for siblings and do housework—preparation for married life, which is often viewed as their ticket to financial security and stability.

NEW BEHAVIORAL STUDY IN PRISONS| The Prisoner’s Journey | Prison Fellowship International

Our team is in Colombia this week with researchers collecting baseline data for our 40-month behavioral study on the effectiveness of The Prisoner's Journey Bible programming in prisons. Please hold up our team in prayer. You can learn more about the study below.

pfi.org Prison Fellowship International (PFI) announced the commencement of a 40-month study to show the impact of a Bible-based program, The Prisoner’s Journey®, in prisons throughout Colombia, Nigeria, and South Africa.

We know children of prisoners are amongst the most vulnerable children in the world. A key part of our child sponsorship program is to improve the safety of children in our care. This means we have to bring awareness of the problem to help change hearts and minds.

Our program partners do this by ensuring caregivers, communities, and children understand their rights under the law. It’s long and hard work, but we are seeing some amazing things happen.

Prison Fellowship Zambia recently took a delegation of children to Zambia’s Universal Children’s Rights Day to participate in marches, debates, speeches, and other activities where children’s voices were heard.

Safety and security creates an environment in which children can thrive and experience fullness of life and the opportunity to grow into their God given potential – congratulations to Prison Fellowship Zambia for their part in that!

Children of prisoners in Zimbabwe are celebrating after Prison Fellowship Zimbabwe successfully lobbied to overturn a prison visitation ban. This is a breakthrough for Zimbabwean children of prisoners under 18 years old, who were not permitted to visit anyone in prison—even their incarcerated parent.

Malawi_07 December 2017_TPJ Promotional Event

The beauty of the Gospel is that joy can exist anywhere. The Prisoner's Journey started in Malawi at Zomba Central Prison, one of the largest Prisons in Malawi with over 2.5k inmates. This was a promotional event where the famous Zomba Prison Band—once nominated for a Grammy award in 2016 Zomba Music Project—performed. The Prisoner's Journey has broken barriers between officers and inmates and together they can dance and celebrate one Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. http://ow.ly/OWlC30hJWmS

PF Malawi posted an amazing video of a TPJ promotional event—the Zomba prison band played a song with lyrics meaning that we are all like broken cars and Jesus…
