About Me

James Ouma is an author and former children’s TV Producer who has impacted the lives of male teens who need to find clarity. He quit his job as a TV Producer in 2013 in order to develop a restorative justice program for at-risk male teens exiting juvenile prison. His work has seen him get nominated for the 2019 Utumishi Bora Award. He is an avid cyclist who uses cycling and running to fundraise for Lifesong Kenya’s REAM Program. www.lifesongkenya.org

My Vision

Needs

I am looking for resources for coaching, mentoring and learning opportunities. If you can contribute finances towards my work, great!

Abilities
