Alternative to Custody - Offering boys in Malawi a Second Chance at Life

We have opened a new reformatory centre to offering young men and boys an alternative to crowded prisons and inhumane conditions. At our new centre boys have the chance to rebuild their lives, and leave with a good chance of a future and a life free of crime. The centre offers rehabilitation and training to start their own businesses. Here they learn bricklaying, bicycle and motorbike repairs, giving them the best chance at a new start in life when they finish their sentence. We also work within prisons offering rehabilitation and reintegration back into communities.

Chance For Change is working to promote reformative and community based justice alternatives in Malawi. Currently the common practice is sending young men and boys to prisons where they face long and pointless custodial sentences in overcrowded conditions. Dangerous for their health, and offering no opportunity for rehabilitation.
