PROGRAMME ISTO IMPACT THE CORRECTIONAL ENVIRONMENT THROUGH THE BUILDING OF A CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY, IN ALL AREAS OF HUMAN ACTIVITY IN THE PRISON.
PROGRAMME FOR INCARCERATED MEN AND WOMEN:
Well-organized and well-trained volunteer teams of men and women from the communities surrounding an institution present an introductory 3-day weekend, described as a short course in Christianity.
This inter-denominational team of volunteers – both clergy and laypersons – works in cooperation with the Chaplain and Institution management who carefully selects up to 42 inmate leaders to attend.
These leaders are selected from long-term influential prisoners.When they change behaviour after accepting the grace and forgiveness of Christ, their change in behaviour serves as a witness and inspiration for those that know them and live with them.
The weekend is followed by monthly reunion meetings to encourage participants to support each other by participating in weekly share and prayer groups.
