WHAT WE DO
Children of Prisoner's Project
To begin with, PCF in Partnership with Prison Fellowship India started with two counsellors with 100 children under the age of 13 in 2014. These children mostly belonged to the prisoners of Nasik, Taloja, Thane, Kalyan, Kolhapur, Alibaug and Pune. Today PCF looks after the welfare of 250 children and has 10 volunteers.
