The Yellow Brick Road Charity Brunch 2016
About Campaignends 11 Jan 2017, 11:59 PM
Too often, the true victims of incarceration are the families and children of the inmates. Many are affected emotionally as they are thrown into dismay and disarray at the incarceration of their loved ones. The Yellow Brick Road (YBR) Project was set up in 2015 by the Prestige Children Committee to support the families and children of inmates.
The programme focuses on understanding and addressing marital and educational issues, parenting behaviours and developing family bonding activities to strengthen relationships and mitigate children's behavioural problems and transitional issues.
To support these efforts, the Committee will be hosting a Charity brunch on 11 Dec 2016 to fundraise for the YBR initiative.
Your support to this event will help us prevent inter-generational offending. Thank you for unlocking the second prison.
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.
