Eldoret Women For Development (ELWOFOD) is a registered women community based organization founded by 2 women ex-prisoners in Eldoret, Langas Slum who had been convicted for 6 years for a crime they did not commit with an aim of enhancing re-entry of women ex-prisoners into their communities through economic skill development. This was due to neglect and hostility that these women ex inmates faced despite the government attempts to reintegrate them.
Many wish to become law abiding citizens and have the best intention of living a conventional life yet most have few job skills, lack a formal education, and experience discrimination in housing and job markets because of their felony records. ELWOFOD seek to build community, not more women prisons.
