Up to 2002 it was very hard to visit prisoners in Albania. Only family members were allowed to, and others if the prisoner himself required so. 
With permission from the High Court in Tirana the workers of Sh.K.B.Sh. not only have permission to visit, but also can start education programs, bible teaching, concerts and church meetings inside the prisons of Albania.

The first years we've had great results with some social projects to help the government having access to drinking water and improve hygiene conditions to the prisoners. 

With support from several International organisations Sh.K.B.Sh. started in 2007 a rehabilitation program for women and promoted anti-trafficking as a result of the need we are confronted with visiting these women.   

January 2012 our staff and local volunteers have activities in 13  prisons and pre-detention centers (out of 21 in total).
