About Kolbe

Kolbe Foundation is the first of its kind: a non-profit, non-government organization managing the prison system of Belize with a unique approach of rehabilitating each inmate. The results are changed mindsets, productive livelihoods, and reduced crime.

All prisoners, through rigorous proven methods, are ultimately provided with things they never had before: counseling, education, hope… and a fighting chance.

Kolbe believes that it’s better for society, an inmate released who has been through life-changing programs, than one who would have been criminally smarter.  Prison has a captured audience, rather than sit in a cell doing nothing, inmates have the opportunity to participate in Programs that can genuinely change their lives.
