Our core philosophy is public safety. We continue to reject violence in all forms. We still believe in personal responsibility, accountability and the Rule of Law.
We are analyzing the root causes of crime and violence:
Several research has pointed to common reason(s) such as: shortage and inadequate funded programs, poor employment opportunities, abuse, exposure to violence, lack of proper education, isolation, loss of parent’s capacity to care for their children and the lack of necessary skills to cope with anti-social issues, anger and peer pressure.
The Challenge: All children have enormous potential to reach their personal and educational goals. We are reducing barbaric ideologies and creating an environment where they can have a sense of belonging and feel comfortable exploring positive interests and passion.
Using research DATA and creating better communities:
Most Parents are not career criminals, and will continue to play a vital role in their children’s lives.
We believe that a life saved will make a contribution to society if given an opportunity, and support. We support inmate families, and communities to transform for a better future
