The African Prisons Project Lent Campaign: You Can Help Transform African Prisons Into Places of Positive Transformation This Lent Period
As a charity organisation founded on Christian values, The African Prisons Project works towards restoring dignity and hope for prisoners in Uganda, Kenya and prisons across Africa. We would like to ask you to join us as we dedicate this Lenten season to remembering those in prison in Africa We shall be sharing messages from prisoners throughout the 40 day Lent period, so please join us to hear their stories and share your messages of support and prayers through our website, facebook and twitter pages. We hope that some of the stories will inspire you to pray for the situations and people you read about.
If you are abstaining during Lent, consider using the money you save to support APP’s work to transform prisons in Africa into places of positive transformation.
