Angel Tree is held every year whereby the ministry hosts children of prisoners and mobilizes volunteers who arrange and present Christmas gifts to the children on behalf of their parents who are in prison.
Children of Prisoners Program
The Children of Prisoners Program rescues, rebuilds, and restores the lives of poor and vulnerable children of prisoners by providing assistance in the areas of safety, health care, education, and spiritual resiliency.
This is a community-based facility owned by Prison Fellowship Malawi built to house released prisoners for rehabilitation, counselling, skills training and ultimately community re-integration. The program is being run in partnership with the Malawi government through the Prison Department, Technical Entrepreneurial and Vocational Education Training Authority (TEVETA), Malawi Human Rights Commission and Malawi Police among others. Ex-inmates are empowered with vocational skills training in Welding and Fabrication, Electrical Installation, Carpentry and Joinery, Tailoring, Crop and Animal Husbandry. Beneficiaries are given take-home tools and a startup capital fund to enable them start a small scale enterprise and lead sustainable lives after prison.
The Prisoner’s Journey
The Prisoner’s Journey is a transformational, evangelism and discipleship program that challenges prisoners to learn for themselves who Jesus said he is, why he came to earth, and what he calls them to do.
Week of Prayer
The Annual Week of Prayer can be observed at any time during the year. The week is designed as a special occasion for Prison Fellowship to communicate and connect with churches and the community in order to focus on ministry among prisoners, ex-prisoners, the families of prisoners, and victims of crime.
