Campaign Story

Blue Hills Probation Hostel and Remand Home started operating in 1960 as a reformatory home for young offenders. The home is run by the Government and is directly under the Department of Social Development. With changes in understanding proper childcare, the home policy has also changed from being a Reformatory to a Place of Safety for children who have been abused, orphaned, street children, destitute, lost children as well as halfway home for children in conflict with the law. With a holding capacity of 60 children, currently there are 23 boys at the institution, 10 are in Primary School, 10 in Secondary and 3 in tertiary. The Home runs several sustainability projects which includes poultry projects, rabbit, crop production and gardening. Excess produce is sold to the community around. Children are heavily involved in the management of the projects under the supervision of staff. Knowledge children acquire in implementing these projects helps in starting and running such projects for themselves when they leave the institution.
