A project in Swedish prisons

A cooperation and project with the Swedish Prison and Probation Service in Sweden started with the tour of My Life and Child's Life in April/May. My Life was performed at six female prisons.

For six weeks in April/May five children and youth from Dandora, Nairobi 11 – 24 years old, performed My Life and Child’s Life in theatres, schools, female prisons and children in institutional care. Children with life experiences in the slums and streets of Nairobi met young and old inmates with tough life experiences in Sweden. Inmates in female prisons in Sweden were presented to the idea of making a sign board for the Mother Tree – The Children’s Meeting Place at UN, Nairobi. Sättilaskolan in Mark Municipality started a campaign to collect money for kids in Nairobi. In Vimmerby municipality the performances interacted with the celebration of the Globetree – a tree famous for it’s connection to the author of children’s books Astrid Lindgren. The organisation Tensta Against Crime invited My Life to their new localities and shared how they work to set a standard of “Role Model for young people” in the Stockholm City District Tensta.
The KF (The Swedish Cooperative Union) High School in Stockholm make field trips to Kenya and got new contacts. The Media School in Nacka documented My Life and made a film. At the University of Gothenburg a seminar was organised to discuss Human Rights together with My Life.
