The Yellow Ribbon Project (YRP) seeks to engage the community in giving ex-offenders a second chance at life and to inspire a ripple effect of concerted community action to support ex-offenders and their families.
Initiated in 2004, the Yellow Ribbon Project (YRP) supports ex-offenders in their reintegration back into society. Prior to rebuilding stable and crime-free lives, more than 9,000 ex-offenders face the challenge of overcoming societal discrimination every year.
The objectives of the Yellow Ribbon Project summarised in 3'A's:
Raise awareness of the need to give second chances to ex-offenders and their families.
Generate acceptance of ex-offenders and their families in the community.
Inspire community action to support the rehabilitation and reintegration of ex-offenders back into society.
How we help
Through the YRP, we also hope to generate greater awareness of the need for second chances, inspires more Singaporeans to accept ex-offenders into their lives and encourages more to come forward to demonstrate support for the campaign.
