Our Campaign Story

ends 14 Sep 2018, 11:59 PM

My name Is Jerome. Im currently 18 this year and living on my own as my stepfather chased me out of the house because was unaccepting of my tattoos. Life since then has been downhill for me having left home at such an early age with nothing but a backpack with few sets of clothes. I had to build myself up to stabilise my situation. Having been through that. I want to start this campaign , in hope to raisefunds to achieve a goal. And in which i will send to organisations who takes in ex-prisoners to alow them to start something new and guide them to their right paths following the yellow-ribbon movement. The reason why i chose ex-prisoners is because i find myself in that situation before where i was out alone with nothing but clothes . So i hope this campaign will allow them to regain hope in life and let them see light.

About The Charity

Every year, more than 9,000 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.
