Sixty Feet is an action-based organization created
to bring hope and restoration to the imprisoned children of Africa in Jesus' name. We are not referring to a figurative prison of poverty or circumstance, but real places, with real bars.
To protect the children and our teams on the ground, we are referring to these places with fictitious names. Throughout this site you will learn about the facilities where our teams work every day of the week. We refer to them as "M1", "M2" or "M3", et cetera. It is not an attempt to make the children anonymous or to make their situation more palatable. It is for their safety.
In response to what we learned about these prisons, we have mobilized a team to significantly improve conditions for the little ones at all of the facilities like "M1" in Uganda. We have been able to treat wounds and improve general healthcare. We have been allowed to worship and preach the gospel daily with them. We have met with children and heard their stories and we are doing what we can to get them released from prison - back to their families, back in school and as much as possible, back into the daily life as a child.
We want to position ourselves to create sustainable, long-term living arrangements for these wrongly confined children. We have so many dreams for them. We dream to bring them hope in Jesus and to restore their lives so that they, too, can dream for their future.
