PROJECT RATIONALE

BACKGROUND

The prison is made up of 75% young people aged 18 to 35. A majority of the persons in the prison have low levels of education. For any offender their status quo in society automatically changes once they are imprisoned. They are considered as ‘outcasts’ or ‘outlaws’. The reality after release is that life is much harder than it was before imprisonment. The basics like finding and retaining a job, finding a safe place to live or being reunited with their families becomes cumbersome tasks. This usually leads to high recidivism (persons becoming repeat offenders.)
