The Yellow Ribbon Project is a national campaign aimed at giving ex-offenders a second chance in life.
Every year, more than 9,000 ex-offenders complete their imprisonment. However, once released, many find themselves stepping into a second prison; a prison with invisible bars – suspicion, mistrust and discrimination. The stigma against ex-offenders can often be more punishing than the prison sentence itself.
The best rehabilitation regime is of little use if ex-offenders find themselves rejected at every turn when they are released into the larger community. Through the Yellow Ribbon Project, we hope to promote a more accepting society – one that is willing to give ex-offenders a second chance at making good.Click here to find out more.
Yellow Ribbon Fund is the first national charitable fund that seeks to raise funds for programmes and services to rehabilitate and reintegrate ex-offenders back into society. It administers funding to the development and implementation of reintegration programmes to strengthen family ties of inmates and ex-offenders.
Since its inception, the Yellow Ribbon Fund has disbursed a total of $17 million to assist 54,000 beneficiaries. The funds are channelled towards programmes and services that help reconcile inmates and ex-offenders with their families, provide emergency financial assistance, training and education and other rehabilitative programmes to support ex-offenders in their re-entry into society.Your generous donation to the Yellow Ribbon Fund will go a long way to help fund rehabilitative and aftercare programmes, which are the supporting mechanisms to facilitate the reintegration of an individual back to the community and his/her family. There are various ways to donate to the Yellow Ribbon Fund. Click here to find out more.
