Introduction

This Inner Rehabilitation Programme is an exciting project done in partnership between African Prisons Project, an organisation which develops leaders and makes prisons places of positive transformation, and Exeter University. And we have the luxury of working with a great committed team in the Kenyan Prison Services who help us make this project a success.

This programme is called Inner Rehabilitation for two reasons. Firstly, it comprises techniques, tools and practices for rehabilitating the inner self. For that purpose, inmates learn how to deal mindfully with their mind and their emotions. Secondly, the rehabilitation is mostly done among prisoners. That is, a great proportion of the mindfulness training is done by inmates for other inmates.
