New Alternative To Custody Centre - OPEN

Chance For Change is working to promote reformative and community based justice alternatives in Malawi. Prison for young boys in Malawi can often become a life sentence. Exposure to desperate living conditions, overcrowding and diseases such as HIV, together with no offer of education, rehabilitation or reintegration mean boys often end up back in prison or worse. Chance For Change runs programmes both with prisons, and in our community based residential alternative to prison to help boys learn a skill and a trade, and support them on the difficult return back to their communities. Young boys learn bricklaying, bicycle and motorbike repairs, giving them the best chance at a new start in life when they finish their sentence.
