What We do
About our Programs
As an organisation, Joy Bringers is committed to bring transformation in correctional facilities. Thus, in the past, our main focus area was the training of prison inmates.
However, we believe that we cannot isolate the prison inmates from their families and the correctional officials; therefore we have expanded our vision so that we can approach the prison inmates within the context of their officials and their families, and the communities where the inmates come from.
Hence, Joy Bringers’ programmes are designed for the spiritual transformation of inmates, their families, Correctional Centre’s officials and the community.
The four components of Joy Bringers’ programmes are Custodian (Inmates) and Correctional Officials Programme; Ex-offenders Programme; Youth Development (Crime Prevention) Programme; and Skills Development (Community College) Programme.
The success of the Joy Bringers’ initiative is very dependent on support to and from local churches, recreational bodies, NPOs and PBOs, families, community leaders and businesses in the surrounding areas of these correctional facilities.
Teams within the community help inmates that have gone through our training to have a successful transition back into society.
This department also helps to serve the special needs of in-mates, ex-offenders and their families, including children.
We are looking for partners that will join forces with the vision, mission and mandate of Joy Bringers (Abaleth’Injabulo) to BREAK THE CYCLE OF CRIME and to restore the lives of inmates, workers and their families. We need financial partners, as well as skills and volunteering partners. .
If you would like to partner with Joy Bringers financially or with your skills, please download a partnership form from our website, www.joybringers.co.za or contact us at the details below. It is our goal that partners will also interact with each other through the direction and guidance of Joy Bringers to achieve a sustainable network.
Partners will be equipped in leadership and networking so that they can function interdependently and continue to influence the greater society.
