Hi everyone, we're a group of youths from Thekchen Choling (Singapore) trying to raise funds for Yellow Ribbon. Here's a short introduction to Yellow Ribbon Project.
YRF is a registered charity and an Institute of Public Character (IPC) under the National Council of Social Service. Established in 2004, YRF is devoted to the development and implementation of rehabilitation and reintegration programmes for ex-offenders and support programmes for the families affected by incarceration. It aims to help ex-offenders reintegrate successfully into the society, reconcile with their families and find hope in a new beginning.
Do help them by donating here and supporting us. Thank You!
Every year, more than 10,000 ex-offenders complete their sentences and are released from the various prisons and drug rehabilitation centres (DRCs). It is disheartening that ex-offenders have to live with the stigma of having served time behind bars when they are released from prison, one that can often be more punishing than the prison sentence itself. Many ex-offenders, once released, find themselves literally stepping into a second prison. This time it would be a prison with invisible bars, of suspicion, of mistrust and of discrimination.The best rehabilitation regime during incarceration is of no use if ex-offenders find themselves rejected at every turn when they are released into the larger community.Your generous donation to the Yellow Ribbon Fund will go a long way to help us fund rehabilitative and aftercare programmes, which are the supporting mechanisms to facilitate the reintegration of an individual back to the community and his family.
