Rehabilitation & Reintegration Projects
Brick By Brick Petit Verger Prison
A holistic construction-focused reintegration project that provides masonry training, development of employability skills and individualised support in addressing criminogenic factors as well as support needs, both pre-release and post-release.
We connect trainees that have been released to job opportunities in the community and provide them with opportunities to live a crime-free life.
Brick By Brick Rodrigues Prison
Similar in focus to the Brick By Brick project in Mauritius - this project is more focused on pre-release skills development in the field of construction while also connecting trainees to local forms of post-release support.
This project also includes the capacity building of two prison officers in masonry training.
A programme which empowers young people to uncover their aspirations, learn how to develop goals, identify obstacles to overcome, and work towards creating a future that is inspiring and motivating.
Due to Covid-19, this has also been adapted into an online programme utilising WhatsApp and online multimedia resources.
A collaborative series of 1-day workshops with Farmcity, a learning farm, where we worked with at-risk young people to explore various social and environmental issues affecting them and their communities. Based on their learning during the day, as groups they developed their own ideas for addressing crime, drugs and other social issues in their communities.
Who do we serve?
The community, ex-offenders, prisoners, individuals at risk of offending, victims of crime, staff/students and other stakeholders.
