Kenyan prisons are at more than double their capacity. Of those incarcerated, over 40% - roughly 23,000 people - stay in custody for approximately 2.5 years before their trials begin, mainly due to lack of knowledge of the law and lack of funds. Prison conditions affect inmates physically, psychologically, and economically. Families lose income, forfeit education opportunities and lose caregivers when a family member is imprisoned. African Prisons Project's legal aid clinics empower inmates with legal knowledge to progress their cases and access justice through self-representation. These are services they could not ordinarily afford. Freedom brings back dignity to individuals, income to the families and care-givers back to their communities.
