ABC News Report

The World Cup has given us the opportunity to showcase the work we are doing amongst juvenile offenders in prisons around South Africa. We have had visitors from all over the world come and encourage the young men in prison. One highlight was having ABC News from the US come and run a story on the positive impact the program has made within the prison. ABC also went into the community to film a young man who had been released from the prison Academy, it was clear for all to see the challenges these young men face once released.

Please continue to support us as we do all we can to help these young men fulfill their dreams and have the opportunities and support all of deserve.
