8 year old Chloe yearned to attend the enrichment workshops that her classmates raved about. She could only listen intently as her family circumstances did not permit her to dream big. Chloe's father was incarcerated due to drug related offences. Her mother had to take on part-time cashiering job at the nearby supermarket to make ends meet which enable her to look after Chloe and her two siblings at home. Chloe's secret wish to broaden her horizon would not come true without external help.

The Yellow Brick Road Programme is funded by the Yellow Ribbon Fund and aims to support the invisible victims of incarceration. Through this campaign, we hope to provide children of ex-offenders with new learning opportunities, apart from tuition and counselling sessions. Enrichment workshops, ranging from arts, coding, robotics to music, etc, will be offered to the children based on their strengths/interests, through their case manager's assessment. Granted the opportunities, it is possible for these children to live their imagination, dream big as they spend their holidays in a new, meaningful and memorable way.

We seek your support to donate generously towards the Yellow Ribbon Fund. Your contributions will go a long way to impact the lives of our beneficiaries we seek to serve. In line with this year's National Day theme, "Together, Our Singapore Spirit'', let's forge new pathways to support the dreams and uplift the spirits of these children we care about.

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.
