We give an extended hand to change lives
It is widely acknowledged that crime is one of the challenges facing South Africa today. As a result, the correctional services system has not been able to cope with the demand due to the increased number of custodial offenders under incarceration. Similarly, the system is under resourced and the staff generally cannot cope with the increasing demand.Such challenges are exacerbated by the detention and warehousing approach which is generally criticized for not promoting rehabilitation instead. Although the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) provides rehabilitation programs to custodial offenders, the staff are generally overwhelmed with unmanageable workloads.
Such result in limited gains achieved through the rehabilitation program. Therefore, NGOs like Joy Bringers have an important role in augmenting the programs offered by the DCS.
In view of the complex nature of the problem of crime, Joy Bringers will be breaking this cycle by running interventions in three areas of society-family, church and the Correctional centres. The vision , mission and strategies to be applied will be explained in detail.
To see individuals, communities and societies in Africa transformed through leadership in the areas of family, churches and correctional centres.
“To identify. equip, empower and release emerging leaders in families, churches and in the Correctional centres.” “To mobilize individuals in families, churches and in needy conditions (Correctional centres) among the nations of Africa, to come to a place of serving society as transforming agents.”
