How Your Donation Makes a Difference

About Us

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.

Our Programmes

Yellow Ribbon Fund Skills Training Assistance to Restart (STAR) Bursary

The YRF STAR (Skills Training Assistance to Restart) Bursary was conceptualised in 2010 to provide financial assistance to low-income ex-offenders who wish to pursue tertiary education after their release.

YRF aims to support ex-offenders to build viable futures for themselves and their families through upgrading, which will enhance employability and encourage self-sufficiency. The beneficiaries of the YRF STAR Bursary may also serve as role models for other ex-offenders and inspire them to rebuild their lives through education.

Yellow Brick Road (YBR)

Developed in 2014, the Yellow Brick Road (YBR) Programme aims to reduce the detrimental impacts of incarceration on families and children of inmates. This is done through the provision of parenting workshops, family bonding activities and case management services for families. The programme also targets the social-emotional development of offenders' children through enrichment activities, group work, and group / one-to-one tuition.
