PF Netherlands is considered one of the leading NGOs for the care of prisoners and their families in Europe and particularly supportive of restorative justice programming.

Lisa and Hans talk about their unusual and intensive meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1999 when they both attended Prison Fellowship International’s Convocation. Listen to this interview about restorative justice, bringing victims and offenders together in prison, and the cutting edge work being done at Prison Fellowship Netherlands.

Great. I think the work of PFI and others in the Netherlands must have contributed to the low rate of incarceration in Netherlands today.
Keep the good work going!
