Despite being only 9 years old, Hafiz has his heart set on being a chef in the future, just like his father. While his aspirations may be typical of a boy his age, Hafiz faces further challenges - his father, 64-year-old Mr Zul, was previously incarcerated and is a stay-at-home single father. As Mr Zul's priority is raising Hafiz, he doesn't hold a full-time job and relies on income selling curry puffs.

For Mr Zul, given that his son has expressed an interest in cooking at such a young age, he hopes to teach him everything he knows. And when Hafiz becomes older and can take care of himself, Mr Zul hopes to be able to set up his own hawker stall.

"My son is my strongest motivation to succeed in life. Without him, I will not be the man that I am today."

Hafiz and Mr Zul is one of the 110 families we support in our work to break the cycle of social disadvantage for families impacted by incarceration.

Despite the inevitable disruptions due to the ongoing pandemic, our staff and volunteers are still hard at work to ensure that every child has a fairer start at life.

Times are different, but the needs are still the same. Your donation will help us change the lives of these families.

Every dollar counts. Help us help families who want to do better - like Hafiz and Mr Zul.

About the Charity

New Life Stories was established in 2014 to prevent intergenerational incarceration. New Life Stories is an IPC (Institution of Public Character) that aims to provide children of incarcerated parents with essential reading and pro-social skills to ensure that they are not left behind in their crucial early years of development.

New Life Stories has put in place a holistic strategy targeted at providing support to children of the incarcerated and their families. The programmes aim to provide these children with educational and emotional stability so that they can have a fairer start in school. Their parents are also supported by our customised in-prison programmes to prepare them for their release and to give them the reassurance to successfully reintegrate back into society. New Life Stories also educates and guides the families by providing them with essential tools to be self-sufficient.

You can double the difference you make! Donate to us by 31 December 2021 and your donation will be doubled by Tote Board's Enhanced Fund-Raising dollar-for-dollar programme!
